Ok so these are from summer, but its cold now and I was trying to think of warmer times. I made this cause i am tired of spending 80 bucks on a suit that is less than a 1/4 yard of fabric. Its insanity!! These pics are taken of me dancing in the rain... its a favorite past time Wink Its black and silver lycra and I used an old suit to make the pattern. i used a janome serger to make the whole thing and a baby lock cover stitch machine to make it look perfectly finished. hope you like it Smiley








p.s. sorry the pool is a little green in the background

So don't take anything for granted, stand outside in the rain. An excuse, you know I planned it. Every ending ends all the same...

Wow - that turned out really well!  The idea of making a swim suit scares me, but the fit turned out really well.  And I like the robot.  Smiley

That is really cute!! Looks like you bought it. And the robot makes it so perfect! I made my swimsuits this summer too because, yes, the prices are absolutely ridiculous.

Great Job on the bathing suit (oh and btw I love how it matches your awesome rain boots).
