Great job, it really looks fantastic! There's nothing worse than an ill-fitting swimsuit and it looks like the swimsuit fits your DD perfectly.

Wow---the suit looks great! I hope to make myself a Kwik sew swimsuit pattern this summer too--and now I better make one for my DD! Lovely job!! What was your technique for sewing on the elastic? Yours looks really nice!

jnamcd - For the elastic, I used cotton-covered swimsuit elastic. With the elastic placed on the wrong side at the edge, first I basted the elastic in with long stitches. Then, I used a stretch overcast stitch to sew the edge of the elastic to the swimsuit. Then, I rolled the elastic/swimsuit fabric to the inside and top-stitched the elastic in place using a double needle and woolly nylon in the bobbin.
