I enrolled on a swimming workout course (you know, aerobics or something in a pool) and needed of course a swimsuit for it. I never find any suitable swimsuits in stores, only bikinis, so I had to make it myself. I love vintage clothing so I decided to make the swimsuit also with a vintage vibe. I really liked the Cindy bathing suit here on BurdaStyle, but couldn’t be bothered to print & tape the pattern so I made my own pattern using my bikini bottom and a tank top for the upper part.
Now I know a little bit better how to sew swimsuits, so I’m already planning to do another one, which I hope will be better :D
