Summer is up

Added Jun 6, 2010

by Ricardo Abreu

Miami, Florida, ...






Since I finished school, I haven’t touched my serge machine. It was up to now that a friend of mine told me to make him a swimming suit. At first I gave him a bunch of excuses because I was afraid of the outcome, but a day later I called him to come over my place to measure him. I altered an existing pattern and a week latter the work was done.

This project tough me a lesson another time: It is a matter of attitude, because I like to work with woven instead of knit and sew for woman instead of man, so all depend if you are focus or not.

Finally, Thomas was happy, so do I and I hope you like it too.

    It would take some guts to wear that, but it is really cool! I have never made bathing suits. I wanna try it some day. Your piece looks very well made!

    They’re great! Love the gold and love the fact, that it’s not something everyone else is wearing. Thumbs up! :-)
