Retro Floral Swimsuit

Added Sep 18, 2012

Nashville , Tenn...






For the top, I started with vintage Simplicity 7143. I wanted more support, so I re-worked the top until it fit correctly around the cups from an old bra. There was a lot of hand stitching involved to ensure that the cups stay in place.

The bottoms were made from a self-drafted pattern.

The lace is hand stitched, as are the buttonholes.

    This is a very nice two piece swimsuit. I am sure you will look very stylish on the beach wearing it.
