Fog Ruffle Swimsuit

Added May 13, 2012

by JPGagnon

Grand Rapids, Mi...






This is from my Spring/Summer 2011 collection, “Lost in the Snowfire.” My inspiration was the early spring thaw when days are wet and foggy from the snow melting. Fog is one of my favorite weather patterns and served as the main focus of the collection. Grape Hyacinth also served as a main color amongst the greys and chartreuse tones.

This swimsuit has a ruffle that runs along the entire neckline and one shoulder.

      Thank you! I created this with flat patterning and draped the ruffle. It’s a one shoulder pattern which I doubled, attached elastic in the legholes, neckline, and armholes. I never knew a swimsuit could be so difficult! However, I loved the end result. :)
