retro swim suit

Added Nov 30, 2012

Austin, Texas, U...






i admittedly messed up on swimsuit no.1, so I had to go out & get some more fabric – which then ended up being too much fabric – which then ended up being swimsuit no.2 – wahoo!

i think i like this one better. the only thing i would do differently would be to add an underwire or elastic of some sort – nothing quite like a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ when you’re just trying to have some fun in the sun!

    LOVE this! I think vintage swimwear can often go so wrong a lot of times, especially when it comes to flattering fit, but I just love this on you. Very, very well done!
