Quick, let me tell you about my latest swimsuit before it gets too cold! To tell you the truth I had no intention of sewing a swimsuit this year: apart from my vacation in Mexico last October, the times I have set foot in a swimming pool in the last two years can be counted on one hand. Since I’ve already sewn a couple swimsuits, plus the two or three RTW in very good condition in my closet, no, I clearly didn’t need a new swimsuit. What I didn’t take into account was the Blackbird Fabrics newsletter, aka pure temptation…
Under the sea, under the sea…When the sardine begin the beguine it’s music to meee (it’s music to me!) What do they got? A lot of sand, we got a hot crustacean band! Each little clam here know how to jam here, under the sea… After my first successful attempt at making swimwear (with the Bombshell swimsuit), I dived straight into my dream project: a two-piece swimsuit inspired by the outfit of Ariel, the Little Mermaid!
Hi there! Do you recognize it? It’s the swimsuit superstar, the Bombshell pattern!
