stripe swimsuit- high waisted

Added Jun 6, 2009

by adabofcolour

Toronto, Canada






Swimsuit, base taken from the pin-up style, and added a top..because evrey swimsuit needs one :)

Material Notes

stripe lightblue and dark green lycra.
Unfortunately my sewing machine does not have a serger option.. or a zigzag stitch either, basically it only does one stitch (but, oh, i can go in reverse!), so working with this design and fabric can be quite difficult at times




Garment Type


cheekie panties pattern for the bottom half of the bottom..

    Oh my this is fantastic! Not only does it look great on you but the stripes are so cute and the shape is just what I’ve been eyeing for a future suit. Did you use a pattern or wing it?

    Great job, especially considering your machine has only one stitch. Love the design!

    I think you need to crop your pictures differently. They look fine in the thumbnails, but the sides (where you are in these pictures, modeling the swimsuit) are not visible in the enlarged picture. From what I can see, I like your swimsuit. It’s daring but still stylish and has a bit of a retro pin-up feel to it (I’m a sucker for retro styles…)
