I love how this turned out. I’ve even worn it to the beach already!
This was the first bathing suit I ever made, and it was pretty easy following Isabelle’s instructions. I used a narrow zig-zag and sewed every seam twice for strength.
I think the seam under the bust should be a few inches higher and this might be because I’m a little long-waisted, or it might just be the design.
