South Ogden, Uta...
based on Burdastyle’s Alison! I omitted the back ties, made the leg openings higher and lengthened the halter ties. I also didn’t use a tab on the front, instead I hand stitched the gathers in. I also upcycled an old bra for the padding.
This is my first swimsuit, and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I also underlined the entire front—using the same pattern piece, just cut in 1/2 inch on each side for…extra skinniness?
