    Very pretty. Just wonder how much of the fabric did you use to make the swimsuit?

      I couldn’t give you a measurement but it wasn’t any more than the pattern needed. The insert was only about 20cm wide and tapered to about 7cm. Does that answer your question?

    That is such a nice touch! It really makes it individual. I love it!

      I just used a zig-zag stitch because I don’t have an overlocker/serger and I didn’t even know there were sewing machines with twin needle fittings!
