Sew Paradise

I bought swimwear fabric…

And also the linen/rayon for pants (this time with a biiiig hem allowance so I can let them down as it shrinks!) So I’m committed. On the swimwear fabric, I got a lovely burgundy solid and a turquoise solid. I wanted prints but they didn’t have any locally, and I’m kinda committed on time to buying locally. So, now to buy swimwear elastic, and get sewing!

the linen/rayon pants I think I am going to draft myself. But I will compare patterns to similar patterns (like the wide leg pants from Christine Jonson) just to be sure they’re not too full.

I’m confident I can sew this swimsuit well. I’m using Kwik Sew, which is well-respected for swimwear, I’ve chosen an easy style (bandeau tankini top and standard scoop bottom) and the nursing alterations are very simple, an overlapping flap on the shelf bra.

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
