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.

Thanks for your review! It looks fab! I just bought this pattern. Do you have to use a coverstich machine to complete this pattern?

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.

So cute!! I love the polka dots and the ruffle is the perfect feminine juxtaposition to your lovely athletic figure. Very inspiring. Thanks for the detailed how tos. The swimwear fabric aging in my stash thanks you, too.

I love your swimsuit! It looks very good on you.

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!

Boy is this ever a cute suit! You look great in it and I love love love the color! I will never again - sigh - be in the market for sewing a swimsuit, but if I was, this would be a great review to refer to!
