Wow! Thanks for the wonderful comments. It actually makes me feel more confident about the whole onepiece business.

I found the fabric in the $1 section of Wal-Mart. Here's what I found from testing it out in water: It's stretchy (probably lycra/cotton/spandex) b/c it retains its shape pretty well and it also dried off really quick. I didn't use a pattern but I did use an old tank that fit me snugly.

then I laid boy shorts (I like the cut at the thighs) on top at the height I wanted the bottom parts to start
and traced around the outline. Cut then sew.

Soooo cute!  I wish I were still that tiny.  *sigh* 

Although I like the look of your first strap variation, I don't think the neck thing would be very practical or comfortable in the water.  And if you're just learning to swim, you won't want to be distracted by constantly trying to adjust your suit at the neck to stay comfortable.  You could sew it like a halter too, I guess, and then you'd get the same effect on the neckline without the straps floating up in your face!  But I'd say the conventional straps would probably feel more secure and comfortable anyway.

Wow Well Done!

You should gather the front, into a V. That way it will give you some chest so you dont look like a 4'10" 82lb girl!

That is a very cute suit, and classy as well.

I don't wear two pieces because I am paranoid that one piece will come off in the water so I know how hard it is to find a nice looking one piece. I might just have to steal your idea this summer.

I would try and feel if it swims comfortably with the straps tied around your neck. If not; do it the other way. But I really like it like this! I wish they sold bathsuits like this. Pretty!

That's so cute... and I like it tied round your neck. It looks really unusual and cute. I'd just worry about struggling to untie it when it's wet.

I <3 stuffies, cute things and anything totally rad.

That's really cute!  You might be short, but as my bf always says to me, you're in perfect proportion.  Good luck with the swimming!
