(Just noticed I hadn't been around these crafty parts of the internet lately...)

My Swimsuit for the Summer (An imitation of Pin-Up Girl's Marylin)





Honestly, if you're thinking about making a swimsuit, don't let yourself be intimidated. It's really not that difficult! Especially with the ruching style. Just make an underlayer/lining that fits snugly (use a panty/underwear pattern/style for the bottom part and just make it a longer piece all the way up to above the bustline). I put cups in the lining, as well, for support. And then the outside layer/shell is basically a tube with a bunch of ruching. Finish, add straps!


 I just tucked the back up under and sewed it to the lining for the retro shorts effect, but left it as the skirt in the front.
