In the Works

So I did decide to buy one of the Jalie swimsuit patterns. This is the line drawing from Jalie 2446. I really like the top from view A and the bottom from view B.


But . . . I also liked the top from KS 2689. So, I kinda just ordered both. Thank you for being there PatternReview.com.



I snagged some fabric from eBay (seller is Lycra4sale). I heard good things from you guys so hopefully the fabric is shipped soon so I get it in time. I really think I need only a day or two to whip out a bathing suit but I want to have at least a week to work out any fitting issues. Really, how hard could it be? First I got this lovely print. I can go greens or pinks, whichever I prefer.


Then I saw this and really liked it. I love the oranges and blues.


I ordered notions from SewSassy.com like elastic, bra cups (don't need the support but I need something to, um, help), lining, hooks, etc. There is a lot of stuff that goes into a bathing suit.
I am currently working away on the BWOF 12-2008-119. I had to get more interfacing and now I'm letting it dry. I should have the lining in tonight. Hopefully finished tomorrow.

I really love that Roxy fabric. You will have to post pics from Hawaii when you get back.

Dawn, How long until you leave for Hawaii? I've got a bunch of new, never tried on two piece suits that would love a home...

My son (who lives in Thailand) sent them to me as samples - I think he thought I might sell them somehow....

I could send you several of them for the postage...and then you wouldn't have to worry about sewing a suit in such a short time...

Actually this offer holds for anyone who is interested. Email me....
