this is my first attempt at a swimsuit. I ordered a top I liked, but the xs was still too big—so I tried to copy that style. I am not a fan of this fabric so much—I ordered it from spandex warehouse and I thought the pattern was much smaller. This is okay because there are a few things I would do differently and I wasn’t so tentative since I was not in love with the fabric. I also made matching boy shorts but I need to reinforce the seams and attach the elastic waist band. I also am going to attempt a skirted bottom too.
