We’ve made it to the end! It’s my official Perfect Pattern Parcel day and I have my last pattern: the bombshell!
I have never made a swimsuit for myself before using a pattern. I always wing it. This experience went together so very smoothly and quickly I was surprised and deeply satisfied. This suit is super flattering and really is a bombshell.
The pink hibiscus flower print is not my first choice. However while I was at JoAnn’s I was looking for density and stretch and this fabric is closer to a wet suit than a stretchy lycra. It is intense. I feel held together, which after two babies and not enough PiYo (pilates yoga) is a good thing.
I had originally intended to make this suit for a friend that recently lost a lot of weight. It slimmed her way down, but she still has super boobs. I thought it would be a fun and good challenge to mish mash the sizing to make a flattering suit for her. Things didn’t work out that way and last night I was finishing up the bombshell for myself to model. I will definitely be making this suit again, I would like to try the bikini option, as I really like the high waisted bikini look. I wish I lived nearer the water, but, I don’t. I live in a cold desert. While we will probably go to our local pool soon, its not quite time yet… I thought my back yard was better than pics in my bath tub . heehee
