I purchased this pattern because of your review. Your swimsuits turned out great and look wonderful on you. Nice job!

Hah! We should ALL look so terrible! Oh to be young and thin again, wait . . . I never WAS thin, oh well, at least I was young once! How did you do the twist top? I've been looking at lots of reviews lately and had a couple of twist top patterns in my wish list, but at least one of them is discontinued!

Oooh, I love. I haven't yet tried making swiming suits (too many years with no pool or ocean to use them in) but your results are making me want to try. Sooooo cute! Great review, thank you!

This looks great on you. If I had a cute little shape like yours I'd keep sew a wardrobe of swimsuits too!

The stripes are great! I hate sewing around rings, too. In fact I just threw away a top with rings on it. Hated the fabric-evillll! You look outstanding!

That is soo cute! I love the way you've made the suits unique, the rings look fabulous! And they do look hard to put in too :oP

Well, a girl can't have too many bikini's (or shoes) and the latest set are great! I once went away for a conference with a 20 something and she packed 7 pairs of bikinis for a 3 day stay!!!!

Great suit. Extra inches - uh - where? This is a nice style on you.

Both you and the bikini look fab!

Very nice job on the bottoms. Have fun in Hawaii. Ha! Extra inches and weight--my foot! I agree with Gigi - Enjoy your figure while you've got it! The good Lord gives and the good Lord takes away.

Excellent suit, and you have a gorgeous body! No extras I can see anywhere either, LOL! Great job, LOVE the twist adapted here!!!

"Get married, gain weight...I've been letting myself go! " Hahaha... I've been letting myself go WAY TOO FAR after getting married for so many years. Cute swimming suits!

Thought I already responded to this thread, but put it in the link for your twist bikini top so I copied it back here. Great swimsuit! Your creations are motivating me to look at patterns and make my own. That and the price of RTW, LOL. And this pattern cover doesn't use a live model??? Well, they should use your pic! I'm sure sales would go through the roof.

You look great in your new suit! I don't see any extra either. Enjoy your body while you have it! ;-)

Another winner; I love all the bikinis you have done. Extra inches? Sorry, I don't see it. You look fabulous!

Very nice indeed!

Sensational! You look so good in this style, and I love all the things you're putting twists into. Very inspiring.

Grea bathing suit, and very nice figure...PR's everywhere are shaking their heads at your "extra"...I had more "extra" in the womb!

I've been married almost 20 years -- can I use that excuse?? Wish I looked like YOU!! You shouldn't change a thing. The suit looks fabulous too!
