You did such a great job with that suit. I am going to try it myself. So far, this is the most useful review that I've read. I sew alot of bathing suits so your tips are really going to make a BIG difference for me. Thanks!

What is milliskin and where do you find it? Adorable suit! May be the cutest I've seen, even in RTW.

That is such a nice bathing suit! Makes me very cold though :) . Thanks for including your measurements with the size you used. That is so helpful to me.

What a fabulous suit! If you're after a tan, I'll cheerfully give you the sunburn I copped yesterday on a glorious late summer day lying on my deck ;-)

Leslie, a fabulous cute swimsuit. Forget the natural tan and all it's risks, cheat with a bottle of self tanning lotion.

Lovely swimsuit. I am jealous of the colour, Absolutely love that colour but can't wear it. I look like a corps in it. You, however, pull it off beautifully even without the suntan

This reminds me so much of a bikini I had in my teen years the seventies in Florida! Very cute. I've progressed to boy bottoms and cropped cami-type swim tops, but your version could motivate me to get in shape! And, you really did a nice job on are instructions "article." Good job!
