I wish I had the guts to wear that sassy lil number. Sounds like you had a lot of fun. How do you manage to sew the stretch w/o the fabric getting all wavy at the hems? That is the bane of all my stretch fabric attempts.

I sew mostly with a serger, so maybe that's why... Huh?

I'm curious, how does the old bra base hold up in the water?

I haven't worn the swimsuit in water yet, but i would imagine it would be just fine especially since i'll be mostly wearing it as a halter.

You're so fabulous!  I love everything here.   You look great!

Thx Shawna boo!!

"use tissue paper when sewing with sheers" is now locked away forever...thank you for sharing that tip that you picked up!

oh you're very welcome!

Sheer & stretch scare me. So kudos for not being afraid of them...

oh, i was scared & hesitant too. That's why i was oh so thankful that the lady at the fabric store gave me some tips!

Love the high waist bikini bottom. Have never seen anything like that....if you said the words "high waist bikini bottom" to me, I would think "old lady bikini" but I would be wrong, it's really freaking cute.

well, "old lady" bikini is basically like the vintage bikinis that you would see on pin up models, that's how i thought & envisioned it! Thx so much!
