Image from Modest Swimwear Solutions
I finally received my swimsuit pattern and fabric! I ordered them from Modest Swimwear Solutions - not because I've ever been particularly modest (certainly not in my youth!), but because I love being in the water and since getting malignant melanoma a few years ago, I can't get out in the sun for any length of time any more. These swimsuits cover a lot of skin and with the alterations I plan to make, will cover even more. My top will probably have 3/4-length sleeves and the legs will be capri-length. And I'm planning to make the tunic shorter than most of their suits show. I really like the colors in the picture above from the Modest Swimwear site. I just might have to make two swimsuits to get that look for myself!
In the meantime, here is the fabric I chose, because it looked like "water". Maybe I will disappear when I'm in a pool.
Daisy, did you need a special needle when you made yours?
