I am very behind with my blogging so a quick catch up.
A quick swimsuit for Zara in a bold orange.
The same swimsuit pattern I used here
I made it to her measurements and added several inches to her length.
Too much, unfortunately.
I was able to save it with a shelf bra but this one has been handed on to a more buxom friend.
For the next one, I cut a muslin which fit so well I finished it!
I self lined the suit, I find with the constant use swimmers get here they last better/less bagginess.
Next, some long promised shiny goldenness.
Oliver+S Playtime leggings
I used some gold spandex from Spotlight. It sewed up quite well but I found I had to overlock each seam twice as there were skipped stitches, even with a brand new needle.
With the first wear, the seam 'opened' up a wee bit but has not got any worse and it holding strongly so that may just be the nature of the fabric?
I made Liddy the size 12, with length, Tilly the size 4 with length and Trixie a straight 2T.
(Elizabeth's were just drafted from some she already had)
'Til we meet again!
