My Bombshell Swimsuit



I am happy to report that I have successfully ventured into the world of sewing my own bathing suit.
With much words of encouragement, I managed to gather my way to a very cute, well-fitted swimsuit.  It was sew much fun to sew The Bombshell swimsuit by Closet Case Files.  No more will I have to spend time trying on ill-fitting bathing suits in stores, being consulted by store clerks that are half my age, telling me how wonderful I look in that same ill-fitting bathing suit.  This swimsuit makes me feel so sexy, fits me like a glove and it hides all my "perfect imperfections"  With my new hair do; my summer has official arrived!

  5. You look FAB in this suit, and it fits you perfectly. With that pattern, I may even get inspired to make myself a bathing suit - I hate most of today's RTW suits. Thanks for the great review also!

    1. Thanks so much. RTW suits are so awful for petite women with big ta-ta's. Give the pattern a try and I really recommend the sewalong, it is so helpful.
