Polka Dot Bombshell Swimsuit

This is a great pattern and I have every intention of making it again, maybe before vacation in February. I learned a lot: I never sewed with spandex before, or made a swimsuit for that matter, and there’s some things I want to do differently for the next go-round to get better results and a better fit. Heather Lou, you rock for putting out such a well-drafted pattern and writing great instructions! I felt like you were holding my hand the whole way through the sewing process.

I’m looking at this suit as a “muslin,” because the bust doesn’t fit, before I make the awesome final version

      Thank you! It’s a muslin because the top is too big…lessons learned for next time!
