First of all - and I don't want this misunderstood in any way, but it just has to be said - I would KILL for a body like yours!!  Second, I am amazed at so many things about this - that you didn't use a pattern, that you've only ever hemmed and made skirts before this, and that it turned out so darn perfectly!!  You are talented.  Like, a lot.    Grin

Also, I thought the shorts were cute but the bathing suit was my absolute favorite part...until I saw the skirt and went bananas for it.  This is an awesome project!

So cute!!  I love the swim suit and skirt the best - you did a great job! Can you actually swim in it or is it more of a sun bathing suit?  Either way, it rocks.

That bathing suit is too cute, and the short and skirt cover-ups totally remind me of vintage wear. Great sheet work!

Thanks for all the lovely comments.  I did wear the skirt to work and people loved it.  Also, perhaps if I have time  Iwill do the shorts again and take photos of the process so that there can be a tute.  Then everyone can have great bloomer shorts!
Thanks for all the encouragement.  I can't wait to post more things.

Love the whole ensemble!  Nice choice making lotsa small pieces.  I especially love the shorts.  However did you figure them out without a pattern?  Whenever I try to fit something well around the bum in non-stretchy fabric I end up failing miserably.  Maybe it's just my bum!
