I never thought I would be writing these words for all the internet to see but I am going to sew and show a swimsuit! Heather Lou from Closet Case Files is hosting a sewalong using her new Bombshell Swimsuit pattern. The sewalong starts tomorrow and runs for two weeks. There are three variations to the pattern and I plan to make the gathered bust version. My goal is to have a swimsuit that fits wonderfully and provides sexiness without showing too much skin.
As a nod to the women such as Esther Williams and Marilyn Monroe that inspired the pattern, I have chosen a gold and black metallic fabric. The fabric shines and looks wet which reminds me of the glamorous studio shots from the 1950’s. Heather Lou claims to feel completely at ease in the suit and she looks great. Hopefully my figure will fill out the suit as it is intended!
