Remember this swimsuit from earlier in the summer? It’s the Jalie 3350 pattern with two variations of swimsuits. (I feel like I’ve sewn from ALL Jalie this whole summer – they are NOT A SPONSOR).
Well, here’s the other variation. Twin #2 loves her version just as much as Twin #1 loved her version. I love that it’s pretty and sort of grown up without being too showy. I like that the legs are low and don’t show too much. They are skinny minnie’s so they are wearing a size 8 with 2” added for their loooooong torsos. Often, I can find swimsuits that fit in the length, but are too baggy around the body. Or, they fit around the body, but are too short in the torso and end up being really uncomfortable and the girls are constantly pulling them down. How cute is that cross front?
The crosses cover the topstitching that keep the seams down. Next time, I will attach the crosses to the body a little below where they are now. Sometimes, you can see a peek of the topstitching under the crosses. I think moving them down about a 1/2” will fix that.
See? I told you I’ve been sewing! Just not blogging!
