You look fantastic in your suit! I think you did a great job. I'm inspired to buy some swim suit fabric. I have the Kwik Sew Master pattern book...but I was a little nervous about making my own suit.I was wondering what thread you used for the coverstitch ?

Wonderful job - great fit. Would you recommend this fabric for aerobics clothes, or would it be too hot?

VERY nice!!! The fit is great and you look great in it! Awesome job. Do you think a serger is a must have to make swimwear? Perhaps I will finally be forced to buy one...

Oh my goodness thank you everybody. You've really made my day! I thought, seeing I AM going to be wearing them at the beach I would be brave and take a daylight shot to put here so you could get a real idea of the pattern. I'm in the middle of making a trial run of the Vogue swimmers now. That really IS a first for me. And if they work it will be because I have the KS fit to go by. Thanks again.

LOVE your suit! You did a beautiful job and the colors are wonderful! I, too, like the KwikSew swim wear patterns. Kwik Sew has a great book on making swimwear - with lots of patterns included and excellent fit suggestions.

A smart cozzie - well done. The fabric is gorgeous, too.

Terrific swimsuit. I really love the fabric and you look sensational. I have a stash of swimsuit fabric that I have been staring at for years. You have motivated me to try this pattern.

You did a great job on this! The fit looks perfect. I have a KS bathing suit pattern that I've wanted to try, but haven't gotten around to yet. I love the suit you made.

What a great suit! Love the fabric choice. I, too, love KS patterns for swimsuits. Think of how many you can make with the $$ savings.
