She’s not a cow

My mom wanted a new swimming suit for x-mas, I volunteered to make one. I had this crazy fabric in my stash and she liked it.

I’ve copied an old swimming suit of hers, but am improving it. I have one with a built in sports bra that I love and am using the same idea for hers

So I’ve made a prototype in white (which is supposed to be lining) for her to try on.

This is what I truly enjoy in dress-making and art in general, to solve a problem and create something that didn’t exist before. As much as I see the benefits of following a pattern, I’m not creating. I follow directions which is not the same thing. To repeat myself bores me.

That said, I do use patterns, most of the time even. It’s practical, it’s fun. But it’s not creating. Unless I change something.

  2. Well I’d say you are very talented to be able to make a pattern and take it to completion! That in and of itself is quite impressive. It would be awesome to have a custom swimsuit. I stopped looking for a swimsuit because it became too frustrating. Your mom is lucky to have you make her one! Happy new year! Koko:)
