Swimsuit number 2March 25, 2014
I finished view two of my (work in progress - early stages) swimsuit pattern today.
This one is also a one piece - with no central seams, featuring adjustable crossed back straps and a peplum frill. I was inspired by this pin my friend Mie from Sewing like mad pinned last week. I was already planning on making the swimsuit without central seams and ruching and with the adjustable straps but the frill just got me excited!! The peplum frill will be an option to add to all one suit views (of which there will be three - ruched centre pane (like this one) l, flat centre panel, no panel - seen here).
I was also excited to see if I could locate this bird print that I found at my local spotlight a few weeks ago. I had noticed it on the clearance table but had no project in mind for it. But since deciding to work on this pattern, I thought the bird print would look great. If you love this print as much as I do, keep an eye on my blog and facebook page as I will be giving away a metre along with my pattern when it is ready for release.
The strap construction had me taking my bra off to examine how the loops were configured! Perhaps I will include that tip in my finished pattern!
I will leave you with Isabella and her best blue steel impersonation!!
I hope you like this version! On to the ruched two piece next - this time for Emily. I am also very excited to show you a new dress design I came up with over the weekend!!
