This is outstanding and to think you also saved a good piece of fabric in the making - it is so close to the Danskin it's hard to tell . Terrific work

Looks great. That looks like a tricky garment to copy successfully. Kudos!

How wonderful that you got the suit you wanted and recycled at the same time.

What an amazing swimsuit you've made! Such a great reuse of fabrics. As active as you are, this suit will get a LOT of use. Thanks for a great review.

Fantastic work Treefrog! Great save from the pants fabric too and yours look even better than the RTW. No wonder you're happy with them.

I like your swimsuit better than the inspiration swimsuit. Great addition to the Summer Outdoorsy wardrobe.

Fantastic refashion and RTW knockoff! I'm so impressed by your bathing suit, it's not even funny. :)

Fabulous, and the elastic looks perfect, it's a dead ringer for the inspiration garment.

Fantastic job on drafting your swim suit...it really looks like the Danskin suit! Very clever to re-fashion something that you didn't wear anymore...into a great looking swim suit!
