Here are two new pieces that I made last month for Burning Man. I wore them separately on the playa, but paired them into a swim suit for a trip to Laguna Beach last weekend.


Im not sure why the waistband was all floppy right here. It stayed tight at Burning Man, and once I waded into the ocean it shrunk and didnt stretch out again. That rhinestone button is actually my husbands, but I thought he wouldnt mind. So far there havent been any complaints.


All the materials were scraps from my sewing cabinet. The patterns are my own, and I improvised the elaborations.

I really like the bottoms.  It fits so well in the back.
