'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.

Gorgeous!  I bought one almost like that and paid over $50 a few months ago.  BRAVO!

Awesome! I have been in search for a swimsuit for the past couple weeks, but the cheapest I can find is $40, which I cannot justify spending on something that is made of so little fabric. Was it hard to make your own?

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.

Wow! WOW!

My sister works at AA, and gets 1/2 price on everything there.. and since we're the same size I was going to ask her to buy one for me with her discount... but I think I might just make it!!  Looks pretty easy.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

That is super cute and you look great in it. Unfortunately, I would look like a five dollar prostitute in that so I could never make one for myself. You totally rock it though.
