Summer sewing has begun.
I started it off with a set of tankini, using the same pattern I drafted for the previous set I made 3 years ago. The only change was adding bit more coverage on the bottom for the back.
A month ago I was at Mill End in Reno for some other sewing stuff. I saw this print for swimwear and I had to have it, also bought some brown fabric to match. I really, really love this print and how it looks.
The tankini top has a shelf bra. The bottom is reversible with brown on one side and print on the other. I think I like the brown more to contrast the top, but Paul likes the print more.
It took a few tries to get the elastic band right for the bottom. I really do dig this set and it cheered me up tremendously to get some hot weather sewing going.
