This swimsuit was fairly easy to make. The binding piece that extends around the back and turns into the halter does not seem to require elastic. I also bound the leg holes instead of using elastic. If you apply binding or elastic make sure keep the elastic taut (a one to one ratio) across the front and stretch the elastic/binding a bit tighter at the back. It seems a little short-waisted so next time I’ll add an inch or so to the torso. Otherwise, it’s a pretty great bathing suit pattern, I’ll definitely make it again.
