Ever since I made my first bathing suit I’ve been itching to make another one. I wanted to try a slightly different style, gather the front a little more to give it a bit of shape, fix some of the imperfections…

While my machine did not appreciate the elastic and lycra combo, after lots of pushing, prodding and some seam ripping I got the job done. The bottoms look much better on than the do lying flat because of the gathering (and seam difficulty), so I took some pics on my vacation in Mexico.
