Hello everyone! I have missed you all but am glad to be back. Perhaps you’ve heard that the reason for my absence was due to a chronic illness. For the past year I have been struggling with a syndrome that presents symptoms much like chronic fatigue, and therefore have been too sick to sew for the past 7 months. Don’t worry, I’m doing great and can’t wait to get back in the game.
Proceed with caution! This is the most frustrating thing I have EVER made. Was it the fabric that made it so difficult? Nope. It was the insanely remiss instructions and pattern markings. The fit could be better; I wish I could have lengthened the torso. While the finished product looks great I will probably never attempt to make a bathing suit again, especially not this one. But with my white beach skirt and hat, I have to admit it looks fabulous!
