Vintage rose Bombshell

I’m thrilled! I made a bathing suit! (And I posted it on the internet, what?)

Actually I don’t really like swimming or being in swimwear in general but I couldn’t resist this lovely pattern. Most bikinis and swimsuits don’t fit me right, but this 50’s-model is perfect for my hourglass-body.

And this summer I will cross the Atlantic Ocean for a vacation in Miami, so my bathing suit will come in handy for sure!

I cut size 10 and didn’t make any alterations.

    Yes, It does take a bit of crazy to post a picture of your swimsuit on the net, but WAY TO GO! This is fantastic. You look great in it, and it looks well made :)

    This is superb! The color is great on you, and the fit is fantastic. I made a Bombshell last year, and it’s by far my favorite swimsuit!

      It’s actually a very good pattern, if you follow all the steps really close it isn’t that hard!
