I've made several S&S suits but not this one. Unfortunately, I am short waisted so can't help you on the long waisted business! This is a great pattern so once you have it perfected you should be in good shape to make several.

I have had a similar problem with Stretch & Sew swim patterns - FAR too short in torso! I recommend using the Kwik Sew Swim and Actionwear book (includes patterns) and following their measurement and fit adjustments. I have had fantastic results on the very first try, and I have a lot of fitting issues. I have sewn probably 20 or more swimsuits and find Kwik Sew fit consistent & the book has excellent instructions with reliable results.

DreinPA the pattern looks cute and it'd be good to see a photo even though your swimsuit didn't work for you. I find making swimsuits challenging too. I have to shorten the back and butt area and still haven't got it perfect. But there are some very good swimsuit sewists on this site. Why not look up 'swimsuits' in the garment type and read their reviews? Hope this helps.
