a buttercup yellow one-piece vintage bathing suit made using the alison swimsuit pattern from burdastyle. i made a few adjustments to fit my size and bodyshape. more details here.
my first attempt sewing with a pattern so there were a few OMG moments and some rough edges but still so much fun! :)
i used stretchy lycra fabric with a cotton underside. it is especially comfy and thick enough to not need much lining.
