i finished my ruched bathing suit, this was my first bathing suit using poly lycra, and it wasn't really bad sewing like i thought it would be,,it was going to be a tankini but then i just sewed at the bottom of the top to the leg bottoms, it's supposed to look like this one from pinupgirlclothing:

i think it's pretty close considering the price of that one, compared to just a yard of lycra fabric, i used a princess cut pattern.
heres my suit:

for this i used a dress pattern (NEW LOOK 6957) for the top part because the back was high, (i dont like scooped cause i dont like my upper side fat pouches hanging out Shocked) , and many thanks to missbrache on etsy for advising me to use the "slash n spread" method to alter my pattern,,,for the bottoms i used a bathing suit pattern (KANDEL KNITS 72), i've made some other bathing suits from stretch cotton, and one from the older thick knit fabric, like my mom had in the 60's,,,,,,,for those i used another pattern, maybe i can post pics of those sometime.
