Well, I have finished my very first clothing sewing... and I've made me-self a Bathing Costume! Old-timey, no? We're going lake type camping at the end of the month & I had no bathing suit, and no wish to get into one, so... you know, this is what happened:


I used a couple different patterns: New Look 6705 for the top (I added the belt & belt loops) and 6707 for the shorts (I cut the pants short). I added the stripes with seam binding.

i've been SEARCHING for a place that made something like this. I'm a big girl and like the cover-up action of the old time suits. I'm not much of a clothing crafter but I'll have to try it I guess

I'm a fat, crafty chick. LOUD AND PROUD!

Check out my bi-weekly podcast where two twenty something heterosexual women (who act like fifty something gay men) discuss geek culture, pop culture and all things Disney, Doctor Who and theater.

FREAKING adorable.  I had to go swimsuit shopping and was just WISHING I could find something I liked.  Good Job- really really doesn't look like a beginner job- you have talent!
