      It’s swimsuit fabric from Denver Fabrics – they have a great selection and really great prices.

    Love it! I really want a vintage-y swimsuit. It reminds me of Esther Williams in old movies.

    Fits you perfectly! I’m tempted by the Alison now.

      I would imagine it’d be tough to fit on someone taller (I’m just a little over 5’4) as the torso is a bit short, also someone with a larger bust, I put B/C cups in the top and it was a tight fit, definitely would cut the top a little bigger if you were to need a larger cup size
