This is a swimsuit I made from McCall’s 8026, a vintage 1984 pattern. It’s simple to make — just two pattern pieces! I serged the edges, rolled them under and topstitched, adding elastic to the waist but not to the legs; they weren’t needed. Very comfy and fits nicely.
More on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.
I used a very sturdy stretch poly knit — not flimsy at all. Very much like the fabric swimsuits were made from long ago. Thick too.
