Swimsuit

in: Sewing

Jalie 971

Here’s my new swimsuit, Jalie 971. It doesn’t look like much hanging there, and it looks terrible on me, but it’s very functional. I need to add an inch, at least, to the bust length, so that it’s long enough to go over the gigantic ones without pulling the shoulder straps forward and having an armhole that is too low. The width is good in the bust. I also need to lower the leg holes. It’s cut too high for me, and my belly fat hangs out, very unattractive. And I need to figure out how to shorten the back length … well, not how, but where. There’s a cutout circle that I want to keep in the mid back area, and I don’t want to make the shoulder straps too short, or I won’t be able to get it over my head. Well, I’m going to deal with the front stuff first. And it seems that the next thing that I’m going to sew will be another swimsuit.

I wore it to swim in, and it worked very well.
