Really Cute, Melissa!! (Won't be showing my DH THIS pic! He'd have me jogging to @#$ just to try to get so cute & trim...) Enjoy! I could see you using the halter with shorts/jeans. Maybe the top of an evening outfit...

MelissaB, it all just looks so good! I envy you being able to wear a halter-style top like that, whether bathing-suit or otherwise. My larger-than-DD cup size needs both industrial-strength support plus more coverage than any style I've seen out there yet provides! Still, I think I may someday experiment with KS 3063. *** Rhonda in Montreal -- if you're seeing this, I'm going to be in Montreal from this Friday (the 9th) until the 19th. I'd love your recommendations about fabric stores there! I can't PM you, but if you'd like to, you could e-mail me at Thanks! And MelissaB, I always enjoy your projects and will continue to watch for them.

Glad you found a top that works for you after your struggles with 3238! This short halter looks great on you.

"IBTC" ROFL Melissa, you crack me up. You look amazing in that suit, and the top is PERFECT for you! It looks fantastic!

Cute! I was looking at this pattern but could not decide on the bottoms. They look great!

Isn't it wonderful to get advice from.. similarly configured friends :-)? Saves oodles of time and frustration. And your results are great. Happy swimming!

Okay, Melissa, let's clear things up here: HOW many babies have you had?!?!? You look AWESOME! The fact that your swimsuit is way better than RTW doesn't hurt at all, either. Great swimsuit pieces, too, which really 'suit' you (pun intended)! Great work!

Hi, I was wondering did you use 2 way stretch spandex or 4 way. I here 4 way is what RTW uses. Just wondering if you had a preference. Thanks, Jilly

Jilly, my swimsuit fabric had 4-way stretch. Never made suits with fabric that had only 2-way so I can't comment on that, sorry!
