Every summer I make swimmers, and this year I tried something new.
A two piece!!
I know I’m not a big person, but since having kids and being too close to 40 for my liking, I haven’t been brave enough to try a bikini. This is an extremely conservative bikini, but I really like wearing it.
After seeing it in photos, I’m not so sure it looks super fab, but I’m also not sure if that’s how I would feel seeing myself in any swimwear photo :/
I drafted the top myself and the bottoms are also drafted be me, but based on my regular Kwik Sew pattern with a full bottom adjustment 😉 The fabric was from Pitt Trading, and was a complete impulse purchase, spurred by Susan. Apparently both are Zimmerman fabrics, and even though the main fabric is very green, I love it.
I also have this Zimmerman swimwear fabric in my stash that I purchased from Tessuti. I guess it will now become my 2017 summer swim suit.
