Description

I finally made my own swimsuit! This bathing suit was meant to be a muslin but it ended up good enough so I probably wouldn’t sew another. The fabric is dead stock found from my local fabric store for a cheap price.

I shortened the breast insert because the gathers were too much for me. The legs were finished with ordinary elastics since I didn’t have swimwear elastics at hand. Maybe I will change them later.

    i love this suit—right on trend and ultra flattering! I love the color and the shoes too! :) great job! I am still too wimpy to try to sew a swim suit… but I want to so desperately!
