What kind of lining did you use? Is there actual swimsuit fabric at joann's I just don't know about?

There is actual swimsuit lining stuff at Joanns. Its...pinky peach. I don't really know if anyone is this color in actuality, however.

And thank you for all the compliments! I'm actually going to Florida on Friday so I get to test drive this thing. Especially since it is SNOWING here in Michigan. Ugh.

I was almost afraid that I would look a bit stripperesque in it, but I think that since my ninnies are small, it offsets the trashiness, a little.

Whoa, CeraMom. I thought my mom had joined Craftster...because thats how I spell my name.

I should make her  join, on second thought.

No, not at all. This particular kind of cut was pretty much the laziest thing on the planet. Its five pieces, the rectangle for the back, the two slightly flared front pieces, and the two bottom pieces.

The only hard part for me was attaching the lining to the actual fabric. I serged around the edges of each piece first, then sewed them together with my actual sewing machine. Then I used a stretch stitch to topstitch everything.

I love it! The sheen photographs so nicely. The top looks so good, I love the color of it. It balances out the brightness of the tiers well.  And it makes your ta-tas look fabulous.

'Cause I'm obnoxious, but I cant justify spending 80 bucks on a damn AA suit.

Instead I spent 7.

1/4 of a yard of this stuff + 1/4 of lining fabric later...oh and about six hours, we get this baby.

I feel like it should have a sound effect for the shiny.



Detail of front:



And the back of the top:



Got lazy and instead of shortening the back part (it was already serged to the lining) I just pleated it.

The bottoms are just boring side-tie ones. I didn't think anyone needed crotch/booty shots.

Wakeupdonnie, it'll just look like an Agyness Deyn style pixie when you have it down, with a little tail in the back if you do the mohawk all the way down.

I love it. I love the little camper on the hand so much!

The only thing I would say is maybe think about putting a second coat on NZ? Its kinda splotchy. Though its also kinda kitschy.

Gorgeous as always! That dress looks super comfy! I like the pattern of the fabric.

Wesley Willis head-butted my boyfriend once, in the stomach.

This is amazing. I am truly jealous.
