We’ve seen a handful of gorgeously sunny days in Indianapolis and they’re making me think of going to the beach, lying in the sun and recharging after a long, cold winter. Thawing out- yup, that’s what I need to do right about now.
I want to shed the sweater layers, not to mention the underlayers, I’ve been wearing for what seems an eternity. Let’s say goodbye to those warming layers!
Last year, Katie and I ran a swimwear sew-along. I had so much fun putting together all those posts with her and now that I’ve made a swimsuit I’m wondering if I’m up for making another one this year.
I recently bought a couple of bras from Barbara’s here in town- the only place where I can find small back/large cup bras (my underbust is 29″ and every other place wants me to wear a 34″ back! which just would be too big) and now I’m thinking I could use those bras as a template to make an underwire swim bra.
Here are some ideas and elements I’m liking:
I’d just buy one of these but they don’t come in my size. For the most part, the bands start at 32s and I need a 30 and the cups at a 30 band don’t always go up as high as I need them.
I tried to add the images but that particular website doesn’t allow it….and I tried using my magic. If you know another way to do it, please let me know.
Anyone else thinking about making swimwear this year?
