One Piece Swimsuit with Opera Top – Kombi Knits by Beverley Sharp #309C 1979

This is a variation on the previous scoop back swimsuit I made by the same pattern company except it has an angled back, halter neck ties, and accented bound edges. This version of the swimsuit has the same princess seam lines, which I decided to emphasize with contrast paneling, and of course I found both fabrics in the remnant bargain bin lol. It is very comfortable to wear, and it has ample coverage. Bound elastic edging is placed around the entire neck and back opening, and the bias edging is doubled over to make the straps. Both knit fabrics might be a little on the stretchier end of the scale, so the halter straps are way up around my neck lol, but I still feel at home in this swimsuit.
