Why spend hours trying on swimsuits priced at $30, $60 and up, then need one size for your top and one for your bottom, only to find the switcheroo is not allowed or available? I say, let's make a custom fit, or one-size fits "most all", using recycled fabric from your local thrift shop. For less than $5, you can get enough fabric to make a couple of styles. Recycle old bras as well, or even simply bump up the style and fit of a former favorite swimsuit piece. Then add a matching wrap using a simple kimona, wrap skirt, or caftan cut! I hope you will grab a friend or two and contact me to schedule a class. This would be a perfect project for the quick to learn beginner or intermediate student of stichery and design at SEWING FOR THE AGES.
