Really cute, Ocean! I love this pattern and the skinny straps. Thanks for the pics on the bra lining. I don't have huge boobs by any means, but they're big enough to warrant cups. I like seeing how others do their bra lining for C cups or larger--very helpful! Thx!

Thank you all. I had a bobby problem is why I changed the D cup bra by adding the band to lower the elastic to solve that problem. Afterwards, I added the lace to mainly correct the problem of the bottom hem rolling and turning up. That was an afterthought after my swimwear contest entry was submitted.

One thing about this pattern and the fabric print, both really disguises the body shape on a plus size body on the swim dress. The pattern is OOP (Out Of Print) but still available on the manufacturers website. Just put the number in, M4848, and it will come up. Made a change on the bra insert. I added a seperate band for the elastic on the bottom part of the bra. This pattern gives you a choice of putting in B/C cups or the D/DD cups when making up the simple bra insert. Only 2 pieces to the bra, the ront and the back, with 2 darts in the front. The swimdress also has just 2 pieces, to, the front and the back. The pants consist of 4 pieces, but just 2 pattern parts, the front and back, with right and left sides. The waist band is turned down. No extra pattern piece for the waist band. The bra insert is put in as if it was interfacing. As I said, not very complicated in doing this one up.

Very pretty fabric, and a great choice of style for a more covered up beach look. Thanks for the construction pictures of the inner bra.
