I have begun to sew my first swimsuit. I have collected fabrics and patterns these last few years but this is the first of actually trying to sew a swimsuit.
I have these two patterns:
I am going to use 1360 – the tankini since when I buy a RTW swimsuit, this is the style I like best. However, in RTW tankini’s tops are always too short on me. Since I am long in the torso, I need at least another inch in length.
For fabrics, I have these in my stash:
And, I also bought this swimsuit kit when I was at ETA California last fall.
And . . . you knew there had to be more . . . I recently bought this at JoAnn’s.
The power net is not as heavy as I would like, but I can use it for the bra band I will sew for the swimsuit.
It isn’t really warm enough here for swimming (although, it is plenty warm for yard work!)
Time to get back to sewing!
