I'm thinking of making my own swimsuit as well. I really like your choice of fabric, where did you get it from? also what needle and thread did you use ? thanks

Very nice and it looks great on you! Glad to find another fellow sewer who has discovered how easy it is to make inexpensive and great looking swimsuits. I highly recommend Kwik Sew's swim and action wear book. It has multiple patterns included with EXCELLENT fitting instructions for Kwik Sew patterns, including a condiseration for lenghth both above and below the waist. I do find their patterns run just a bit large and thus sew one size down from my measurements. Thanks for sharing your experience and keep up the great work.

Great looking swim suit! I made a KS swim suit earlier this year and was surprised at how easy it is. With the cost of swimsuits in the store, I think I'll be making my own from now on. I love your fabric choice on this!
