Description

This bathing suit was a labor of love. I’ve been wanting to do piping in a bathing suit for a while, but the print combo I had wasn’t quite cutting it. When I saw this print at Fabrics R Us I knew I just had to have it, and quickly ran all over the store looking for the yellow fabric so I could do the piping. Then came the great search for more bathing suit elastic, as my favorite spot seemed to be all out. Once home, I combined my Rebecca Taylor Vogue bust pattern (fresh from the mail) with an old standby, my McCall’s DIY Style bathing suit pattern. The piping was done with corded elastic and my new love—the piping foot—that made it all sooo easy. The final inspiration is from a great vintage-style bathing suit feautred in the May 2008 issue of Vogue UK that I found on Pinterest.
