Finally after my sister’s persuasion (and commission), I decided to give polyester suit making a try! Neither of us are string bikini gals. We like more coverage/support.

Because the fabric is cotton (with some polyester) and not stretchy, so the fit must be exact. In addition, I’ve also added boning to the cups and side.
