i think i wouldn’t be a proper burda style member
without making alison swimsuit :)
was a bit afraid with all the ladies
saying they had such a hard time making it
but it turned out quite simple to make
made a few changes
shortened the bust part a lot
no need to that much space in my case
and i skipped the back strap
skirt is self made also
similar to tropicana skirt
only with two pleats instead of three
see more on my blog
lycra for the swimsuit (green and black)
rayon for the skirt (and elastic for the waistband)
