Lisa,you have more nerve than most of us to sew and take pics in your custom swims!I luv the style of both, they look comfortable, and very swimmable(?word).Someday your older DD will look back at these pics with Mom, and wish she was this talented!By the way,most swimsuit pics make people look heavier, but you look like you have lost weight!Very pretty Hawaiian print! 10 Atta-girls for both the review, and the pics!!

You are SO brave to get your picture in a swimsuit--they are so RTW looking. Hats off to you!

Those are cute little matching suits. Makes me wish I had a DD to sew for.

Wow...thanks, ladies! The swimbra was actually supposed to be a after-manufacturing pin-in affair, but I pulled the pins and used the pin tabs to sew it down. I thought it would be easier to use the swim bra than separate cups...that way I wouldn't have to worry about getting them even ;). Oh, and I only needed about an extra half yard to get DD's suit, too. It worked for this one; her 20 year old big sis would be embarrassed right out of the pool to be in a suit that matched her mother's...

I like your swiwsuits. I am seriously thinking of making one for toddler DD next year and if things work out--one for my self (maybe not matching my toddler!). Thanks for the encouragement

I really need to work out a swimsuit pattern for myself. That's one area where you can save serious $. Thanks for the info, and great job on the suits!

Mother/daughter swimsuits, you'll be a hit at the pool and all the mothers will want to know were you found them! Very adorable

Beautiful swim suit, Lisa -- thanks for the review! I'm much encouraged by the positive experience you had with KS & your idea for fitting the swim bra into the suit is inspired! Thanks for sharing, Pat

Lovely printed lycra and really nice looking togs. Great work. I usually use separate cups for the top, is a swimbra and all in one thing?
