Splash swimsuit

Splash swimsuit

I was planning to make myself a swimsuit around this time… next year!

But then I saw Debbie‘s tester call for her newest pattern, and it taunt me all day… I thought to myself: “I’m not ready to deal with lycra!”, but that beautiful shape never left my mind. So I said: “F#$k it!” (I have a potty mouth sometimes, sorry!) and went for it!

It’s been a long time since I liked seeing myself in a swimsuit, but the fit on this one is just perfect! (sorry, you’ll have to take my word for it.). The gathering in the top is very flattering on the bust, the v-shape of the bodice elongates your torso and the high-waist disguises all those little things you want to hide! You can use different sizes for the top or bottom, and there’s also a two piece option.

Plus it’s really easy to sew, just make sure you have the right tools to work with lycra (I learned the hard way, but it was worth it!). Another feature I love is that it’s fully lined.

I can see myself wearing this for many years and making a lot more, playing with color or prints.

Well, I’m beach ready… see you there!

    Looks great. I’m very tempted to make one for myself. Love the shape and the colour for that matter.

      Thanks Olu! I had doubts about it, because of my “roundness”, but the shape is really flattering and hugs all the right places. 😀

    What a gorgeous swimsuit! I’m still too nervous to attempt sewing with lycra, but this swimsuit looks like it would be worth it.

      I felt the same way, but it wasn’t that hard once I used the right tools. You should give a try, this is a great pattern to start sewing lycra. 🙂

    I love the shape and the color you chose. But, what holds up your boobs? Is there a shelf bra in there?

      Thanks Laura! There’s no support system involved… But the top has a good coverage, so nothing will be popping out. I’ve been wearing it to the beach, always running after my kids, and never had a malfunction.
