This week, I sewed up a swimsuit for our oldest daughter. To be honest, I was sort of dreading this, but I was pleasantly surprised on how easily this sewed up. I was amazed and thrilled. I know I’ll need to sew up many swimsuits as the years go by, so I’m thrilled that it was easy and not something I would need to dread. LOL This is the very first swimsuit I sewed up and I have some changes in mind, but this will work great for the girl’s swimming lessons. I think that for the summer swimming at the lake, I would make the skirt a bit longer.
Swimming lessons were going to start yesterday (Sept. 18) and I didn’t really start to sew the suit up until Wednesday evening. Talk about leaving it to the last minute! I had the top done and the skirt was almost done, I just needed to measure S.’s waist for the elastic. Yesterday morning, I finished the skirt and had S. try it on. The top was a little on the small size, but it still would work until I sewed up a larger top. Then as it turned out swimming lessons had to be cancel because the pool was experiencing power troubles. All that rushing for nothing! Next week, I hope to sew up a swimsuit for R. and a new top for S. Also swimming lessons are to start next week…
I’m pleased to have learned that sewing with swimming suit material is not at all difficult!
