Coming along

I’m working on the swimming suit I promised my mom for Christmas (it’s only March after all) and it’s coming along nicely.

I think all of us who’ve grown a chest have experienced the same frustration when it comes to swimming wear. In the stores you can find skimpy outfits in thin materials that give no support whatsoever. Uncomfortable is just the start of it, beach volleyball? forget it!

So when I finally stumbled on a swimming suit with a built in bra that actually works, my happiness knew no limits. I’ve applied that model when I constructed this one.

First I copied an old swimming suit that my mom had and that fitted her. I then made an extra top half of the front and sew some elastic onto the bottom line as. I decided to have the entire suit in double fabrics as well, for extra sturdiness, and mom has tried on the lining.

The built in bra is attached at the side seam and a band with fasteners will go across the back to make sure the elastic is kept tight.

I will try to get it done berfore this years season is over, but my personal deadline for Christmas gifts is before next Christmas eve, so I have another 287 days or so. Should work.

  2. Oh yes, I agree entirely with you about support! I have a G cup but I am only 34 so it is a big challenge. I like the way you have created the upper panel to give support. What a lucky mum!

    • TACK! Det värmer, skall du veta:) Allt är mycket väl, jag jobbar med föreställningar, hade den första i lördags och en till nästa helg. Men eftersom jag gör allt själv är det enormt mycket jobb. Tack för att du saknar mig, jag återuppstår om en vecka:)
