I made this swimsuit for my cousin. She recently had a baby and wanted a swimsuit that would cover the belly area to conceal what I call “Miracle Marks” aka stretch marks lol. She couldn’t decide if she wanted a retro or modern swimsuit so I tried to blend old with new and this is what I came up with. She pick the fabric print and loves it and can’t wait for Spring/Summer to arrive. I used the Burdastyle pattern Satin panties and bustier 01/2012 #127. Using just the panties pattern I made this one piece swimsuit. I did go one size down from her regular pattern size to accommodate for the stretch factor of the spandex material. The front of the swimsuit is sort of retro while the back is more . Just something I was trying out.
