One Down, One to Go

This is KwikSew 2689. I made this today and it was very fast so I'll probably whip out another one before we go to Hawaii in February. I really like the simplicity of the pattern and the fit. My husband picked out the fabric and I didn't really like it. As a swimsuit, I think it looks nice though. Go husband! Here's the full review.

Meg said...

Um excuse me but now you are just showing off. Those abs, I mean please tell me you work for hours on those each day! LOL What a fanstastic job, as usual. (great fabric hubby)

Noile said...

So cute, and great fit, too!

Kristine said...

Ugh...Can we stick to sewing please? Actually, you've inspired me to try making a suit this summer, AND TO GET MY BUTT TO THE GYM!!!

Claire S. said...

Yep, brave girl. That's a sight of me 'no-one' needs to see ! You did a great job on the suit. DH did good :-)

Hubs was right, perfect for this swimsuit! It looks perfect for the Hawaiian beach. I'm trying real hard not to hate you right now. :P

Explain to me in the most simplistic of terms how you have a four pack after three(?) children? Please tell me it does not involve vigorous exercise, watching what you eat or genetics.

Cuuuute suit. You're lucky you can engage him in the picking out of fabric!

Very nice swimsuit and a great body too! You are going to be my inspiration to go to the gym.

I see we are a lot alike - (originally) brown hair, blue eyes, thin nose, wide shoulders, likes red fabric. There the similarities end because You were able to whip that garment out in no time!

BTW, I agree with Everything everybody else said!

Alex said...

Wow, you are one hot momma! (The suit looks nice too!)

I've been trying to get motivated to run outside in the winter, and if you can do it Alaska, there is no reason why I can't do it here in Montreal!

Kat said...

Fantastic! Of course, I'm more incredulous how you can give birth to twins and still have smooth belly skin. I have a flat tummy but crepe-paper belly skin. Funny thing is, my youngest son LOVES my skin. Says it's so "soft". Glad somebody likes overstretched skin LOL.

Rose said...

Wow! great job with the suit, although I admit I'm distracted by my envy of your abs and all around fitness level. You are an inspiration to us all. You go, girl! :)

You and the swin suit look great!
You definitely don't have the body of a mom that's had twins.

So NOT fair...extremely sewing talented AND HOT! I've never had kids and can't even pull off a suit like that! The fabric is a great choice....I'm sure you'll get LOTS of eyes looking at what it covers in Hawaii!! :)
