Great suit, how was the elastic applied? It looks like a double needle?

I have this same pattern and made 4 bathing suits from it last summer. I don't recall seeing a "skirted" view in this pattern. They were all the swim dress style. I love this pattern. The cups were a bit of a problem for me, I couldn't find what I wanted to "form them". I ended up using everything from foam shoulder pads to quilting fleece and they still look very pointy. I don't swim in mine, actually made them for fishing ;-) I love the color of the material you chose.
