LOVE the suit! I was considering the same combination. I have 4 little ones (oldest is 8 youngest is 3 weeks) so I feel more confortable with a skirt when bending over and picking up kids, and well my breast need the support after having 4 little ones ;)

That is adorable. I'm so jealous that you have kids and can still show your belly off!

Love it-looks a la 1940's vintage!

Sharon, yes I just used a rolled hem on my serger. I had woolly nylon in both loopers so it has nice coverage. I also stretched the fabric as I serged and had the differential feed turned down so that my hem would be a little lettuce-y. Hope that helps you!

Cute swimsuit. How did you hem the skirt? Did you use a rolled hem? Do you have any tips? My serger is old and cranky.

Oh gosh Sherril, you're going tokill me, but I swear it's good genetics that I have. My exercise comes in the form of chasing kids around the house! LOL Truly they have all been good to me and while I gained weight being pregnant, they sucked it right off of me when they started nursing (I feel so blessed!).

Your swimsuit looks great Melissa. Very cute.

I am so impressed by all your sewing. You are right about the nicer swimwear being expensive plus there is no custom option other than stretched out spandex if one area needs to be larger than the other. I liked your children's swimwear also that you reviewed. You really work hard to get all this sewing done.

Wow that is a very stylish attractive suit. I am impressed.

Melissa, you forgot to answer Martinanne, how do you look so fantastic? You look great in that very nice bathing suit. Please tell me you work really hard starving yourself and you exercise like a fiend.

Gosh you're all so sweet ~ thank you for your kind words! Sara, I really don't have a best tip for sewing swimwear. I just followed the Kwik Sew instructions and they were excellent. I did use woolly nylon in the loopers of my serger for extra stretch, maybe that should be my tip. Now get sewing, it's very fun!

Great swimsuit, you look fantastic and I like the top on you.

Melissa, you're killing me! How can you look so good after having four kids??? I have four kids and it's very obvious by my belly. I couldn't pull of an adorable two piece suit like that one. You look amazing and that is SUCH a GREAT swimsuit! I love it!!

They all look great! What would be your best tip for sewing swimwear, for some of us who haven't tried yet.

Great looking swimsuit and t looks great on you! Love the skirt pattern, but since I'm a bit older with a bit of fluff, I'll raise the waistline a bit ;-)
