Brooklyn, New Yo...






I can’t seem to get enough of body suits lately. This one is pretty much the unitard I wished I had in my 5th grade gymnastics class. I call it a solid mix of Blades of Glory meets Logan’s Run.

More on how to make it on my blog Daughter Fish

    Also, maybe it can be good swimming suit with the same fabric.

    Your finishing on this little number is fan-tabulous – love the diagonal black stripes too – so effective!

      Thanks! At first I thought the stripe looked too gymnastics, but now I like them:)

    LOL thats so awesome. At first I thought it was a dress, but since it’s a unitard that makes it even more awesome!

      Thanks! The stipes are actually sewn in. I just cut up my pattern and inserted black stripes of spandex:)

    Wow, cool! Very 1980’s (which is very modern, or will be, not sure where we are yet)!

      You’re in Stockholm, right? Probably means 80’s in are for you, almost for us in the States. You guys are always ahead:) Thanks!

      Yes, I’m in Stockholm. Heh, that probably means I’m a bit slow fashionwise, I tend to like American brands :-). But I did watch an old 80’s movie starring a VERY young Michael J Fox a couple of weeks ago, and I just LOVED the clothes, they looked totally modern, so it’s on its way, definitely… :-)

      Oops, Ichigogirl, I meant to reply, but marked your last comment as “inappropriate” and am not sure how to change it! I would wear anything from “Back to the Future!”:)

      No prob, it’s happened before and they check all bolted stuff before erasing :-)
      Found the movie, it was “The secret of my success”, from 1987! I would have guessed 84-85, I guess it’s true that the general notion of 1980’s fashion is actually more like early 1990’s… :-)! Back to the Future IS from ’85.
      Need to watch them again…!

      Oh, yes, I’ve watched The Secret of My Success, but it’s been a while. For 80’s fashions, I’ve really been into the Cosby Show lately. Mrs. Huxtable really had it going on! The early 90’s are definitely back in NYC: long flowing flowery skirts and chiffon shirts. It’s a little too sweet for my tastes:)

      Denise Huxtable’s pants with a fold over front… aaah, such a fashion moment! I was inspired by her for years. Not sure about her name, though, the elder daughter!
