I have made bathers for my daughters and I have only just gone thru my stash of remnants - so I think I will have a go for myself. Yours look great. RTW are so expensive for so little!

WOW! What a helpful & thorough review! Your suit looks terrific. Glad to hear KS has finally fixed the overly wide crotch problem that many have noticed in their panty patterns. The pop-in lcup./lining trick is so clever. Clear elastic and a synthetic elastic will hold up better against chlorine, which is very harsh. I have this pattern at home, and will definetly refer to your review when I sew it. Thanks!

What a terrific job. It looks great! Wish I could wear a bikini. Thanks for the great review, it will come in handy for making my DD her suits since nothing fits her.

Great swimwear, and from your own"boutique". Exercising seems to pay off, I'm starting to go green....

How neat! You've made 20, think of all the money you've saved. Great fit and the fabric is so cheerful.

Cute cute cute cute cute! This tempts me to try the tankini. Ah, two kids later, I can't boast a bikini bod like yours. I'm jealous! :) -Ann

Great looking suit, and lovely color choice. Really cute!

I like the idea of a pop-in bust cup. I may use that idea for DD, on whom I spent well over $100 last year for swimsuits. Thanks for this review.

This did turn out very nice, great review!

Cute suit! I can't even remember the last time I wore a swim suit (early 90s perhaps?), so I envy those of you still able to look great in one. Nice job, and no wonder you've made 20 if they look like this one! Love the orange.
