Great job. You are brave to tackle a swimsuit. I agree that the fit is excellent and the color looks good on you.

After recently using a Jalie pattern to sew up a costume dress for an ice skater, I am itching to try a swimsuit. You did a great job on yours.

Hurray for finally finishing your swimsuit fabric and for achieving a great fit. Looks good.

Nice swim suit! I like how you lowered the leg openings, they look too high in the pattern photo. As for support, when I'm too lazy to sew in an old, loose bra, I wear a colorful sports bra underneath.

Great job on this swimsuit and your fabric is a beautiful color. Bummer that was the last of the lycra, but it could be fun to hunt for a new one next time.

Great job. I haven't been game enough to tackle swimwear with its lycra and negative ease. Yours looks fab on you.

Nice job! I'm glad merging those front pieces worked out for you, it does save time! I can't believe you sewed this in an hour though!! And you're right...the butt fit is fantastic! :)

Thank you for review of a larger size. What a super sewer to get it done so fast, too. I have also found reversing the usual method and using the greatest stretch lengthwise and lesser stretch around the body gives me more "wobble control" and more comfort with swimwear when starting with a good stretch both directions. The Kwik Sew plus size pattern also gave a good fit in the rear area.
