I'm working on this suit right now and just happened to see your update. I love both suits very much and hope to have mine complate this afternoon. I'm doing the tankini version tho. Thanks for the all the tips & extra info! :-)

Missed this review first time around. What a fantastic suit! I can't believe you got that beautiful fabric at Hancock's. Thanks for the extra info on the redrafting you did.

That swimsuit definitely looks store-bought, and you look great in it! I will definitely try my hand at this pattern when it gets closer to summer!

Oh, I -adore- the fabric! You're very right to gather rather than dart - no reason to dart in a knit...

Your swimsuit is really cute! The fit is great on you. Thanks for the tips on converting the darts to gathers and adding bra hooks.

Love it! I think I'm going to have to look into getting this pattern! I have a similar RTW swimsuit, and it is one of my favorites!
