George, South Af...
My coastal home town can get quite busy over summer seasons…and this goes for the shops (beach and swimwear shops!) too… all swimwear was sold out by early summer!! So I thought I’d give sewing swimwear a go. I do not prefer small bikini’s so went with my own ideas… its not quite perfect but it turned out ok…but it will probably be a wise idea to use a pattern next time rather than going with my own ideas :) for the top I’ve used some shirring to give it the necessary shape and it is also double layered for some body.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
