Alison – Burdastyle #BS-002/2009

I was naughty by not using proper swimsuit material and instead I just used some purple stretch knit I found in the thrift store as lining for the whole inside body, and a floral stretch polyester for a bargain from the sewing store for the outer body. The fabrics didn’t stretch quite as much as I expected, so it may appear tight, and also to fit my longer torso I had to draft a few extra inches length. Can you tell the print is upside down at the front, and sideways at the back; forgot about placement lol. I also added extra length to the leg openings to make a boy leg. I used zig zag stitch just fine. The purple knit can ladder due to the pulling tension if you’re not careful. I accidentally put holes in some of the binding around the lower back, so I sewed the back strap in place lower, exactly over the areas I ruined. However there’s a possibility of being vulnerable to showing more side boob now lol.
