i’m learning, so starting with a swimsuit seemed like a great idea! seeing (and actually fitting into) the end product makes me happy to forget about all the ‘learning’ i did along the way :) i’m a little taller, so when the pattern didn’t fit, I ended up with a suit that was equal parts improvisation, patience and determination!

    wow—great job—i never would have guessed you were a beginner. I made a similar suit as your retro one, however I made up my own pattern—i am going to attempt again following the one you used! :) This fabric is adorable!

    I’m so impressed you dived in the deep end with this project (no pun intended). Can you share what you did to us held back by fear working with lyrca?

    Gosh are you brave. Swimsuits are not the easiest to do! You did a great job and the fabric is super!

    I have been sewing for over half my life, and I cant even make a swimsuit. I tried and failed miserably. I am very impressed by this. You did a great job!

    This is my favorite version of this! Great work. I think a swim suit is a crazy choice for a sewing project. All of your learning will come in handy.
