Cindy Bathing Suit

Added Oct 6, 2009

by pascaleclaudine

Baden, Switzerland






For all of you, who wanted to know, how the Cindy Bathing-Suit looks like on a curvier woman…. now you know. The suit in ocean-blue proofed to be wave-resistant at the beach of Daytona. It was fun to make this bathing-suit, however, the instructions were not always very clear. I had problems to find out, where to add the straps and besides I have so much fabric left, I could easily make a new suit…

Material Notes

Polyester with lots of spandex.




Garment Type
Beach, Vintage

    This looks great on you! After seeing your creation, I’m very tempted to make this in white. However, I’m not an incredibly experienced seamstress (though my grandmother could help me), and I’m really concerned that the top won’t provide enough support. Any advice? Thanks!

    WOW=zers! I am totally allergic to swimsuits, but when I saw this pattern I thought it would be worth taking an antihistimine. How was it to sew? I have heard that swimsuits are rough… Is it worth a waxing and a try?

    It turned out fantastic! I really want to make this, but I’m stick-thin and not sure it would be too flattering on me, considering it didn’t look that great on the thin model…

    Amazing! I didn’t look twice at this Burda pattern and when I saw your project pop up I was like, “What pattern is that?” But WOW! You look fantastic. This is much more flattering on curvy ladies and I’m glad I checked this out, I’d love to make one for myself, thanks so much for being brave number 1 and taking photos of it on and in “action” :) Super, great, fantastic!

    No offense to the burda model, but this looks a million times better on you! It’s gorgeous, and I hated it when I saw it on their model!

    It looks stunning! You have inspired me to try this pattern out, I’m not feeling very confident post pregnant for a bikini this summer!

    Beautiful colour, I kinda thought that the pattern would suit a more womanly figure. It looks amazing on you! Burda does use super skinny models, how stick like are the legs for this weeks tights pattern!?
