Well Ive been lusting over this http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/skirted-swimsuit-retro-swimsuit.html
for ages and then I saw this http://blogs.trb.com/features/consumer/shopping/blog/swimsuit.jpg
in the sex and the city movie. I wants it! and so I was thinking i could totally make this, but Im scared so i thought I'd outline my plan and i was wondering if you lovely craftsters could give me some hints on working with the dreaded lycra!
Okies well i was gonna make it a two piece and use the burdastyle bikini pattern for the bottoms
then for the top...
1. make a tube top with the halter strap sewn into seams
question - how do i work out how big around it should be - like measure my bust less x many inches? how do i work out x to account for the stretch in the lyrca?
question - should i ruch before or after making the tube?
question - will bad things happen if i dont line it?
thanks guys any advice would be rad!
ps i did do a search but couldnt find anything that answered my questions
