The girls all have standard racer back swimmers for racing.
I purchased them here ,yes,they were that cheap and they are fine!
However,they were clearly not suitable for parties or beach wear!
Well,its obvious,isn't it?
Elsa chose a pretty in pink ensemble
Zara wanted something a bit more striking!
I have made rash vests and bike pants for my Tribe for years but swimmers? That require fitting? Scary bear stuff!
Actually,this pattern was a good introduction.
I made them completely with my standard machine using a big stitch and stretching slightly as I sewed.
The instructions were excellent,I couldn't fault them.
I drafted the size 8 in the top,10 for the waist and 12 through the hips.
I think I could have sized back as they seemed a bit wrinkly.
Zara,however,thinks they are fabulous!
Which is lovely.
I think she is rather fabulous and lovely!
