Description

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.

      heheh!!! thank you :) I’ve never really gave much attention to vintage before, but I think I’m starting to appreciate it :) And this is what I LOVE about sewing: creating what you want…and not what is available in the shops! Happy sewing :)

      aww thank you! I can definitely improve on this.. it was such a good learning curve… I really started at the deep end (again – I have this tendency!!!)… but it was fun and I’m already thinking about another one!

      thanks so much :) do you note there are no other people on the beach? Well, i went to take the photos on a sunny day but it was so crowded! so I decided to go back for the photos on another day… and the only quiet time I could take the photos was early on a rainy morning :) hence the different colour scheme in the photos! It was not cold, but misty and rainy :) ooh I love the beach :) thanks again for your comments!

      thanks so much! it is indeed comfy :) I’ve actually worn the top as a sort-of camisole underneath tank tops etc, it is so comfortable and actually want to make another :)
