hey guys,

so i want to make my own one-piece swimsuit this year and i found a free pattern that i really like on the burdastyle website.  the only problem is that i've been looking everywhere for a cute printed spandex lycra mix and all i've come across are solids and really bad floral prints.  any ideas where i could find something modern and cute?

I don't know what your budget is, but maybe you could buy a ready-made plus size bathing suit (so there's a lot of fabric) and use that?

This place seems to have a lot of swimwear fabrics:  http://www.denverfabrics.com/pages/static/swimwear/swimwear.htm

Here's another, not so many:  http://www.fabric.com/apparel-fashion-fabric-swimwear-activewear-fabric.aspx

I haven't purchased from either of these places.
