    Well done! I’m going to try this soon. What type of bra cups did you use?

      I used whatever I found at the local JoAnn’s fabrics. Next time I would probably look around online for a larger cup, but they do okay. Have fun – it’s a great suit!

    Looks like made by a pro! You canged the neckline a bit, didn’t you? Very nice.

      I am smaller/narrower in the rib cage so I ended up having to move the straps quite a bit in on the cup so it laid against my skin and didn’t gap out (if that makes sense). But style-wise, it is the same as the pattern.
