This is awesome! The front bodice looks exactly like the speedo bikini that I've been dreaming about. I could easily draft a racer back for this. Cool!

Love the fabric planing ( using the fabric as a trim ) Very professional looking work.

Keep that pattern. That suit fits great.

What a gorgeous suit, well worth the effort. Now she'll probably want a few more:-)

I just bought this fabric at Gail K in Atlanta not long ago...I didn't realize I was buying swimsuit fabric, tho! This looks great...love the shape of the bottoms.

i absolutely love the fabric, and the fit looks fantastic. especially nice through the tush:) i have the same bust measurement, and always have trouble finding supportive enough tops(without underwire). hers looks very good- can you let us know if it holds up well when wet??

Wow!~ That is a great looking suit..straight out of the Athleta catalogue but way nicer. I LOVE the way you used the chevron trim. A great fitting job as well. I bet your daughter will be asking for another one!

Yes, your review is helpful! And do you have any left-over fabric??? :) GREAT swimsuit!

Holy crap, that sounds like an ordeal! I think I have benefitted from your review greatly, in that I know I won't be attempting a swimsuit any time soon! :)

Beautiful suit! I'd say you won the fitting battle!

It looks really good and so stylish! I appreciate the details on how you modified it to fit your daughter's exact body type.
