Call them cozzies, bathers, swimming costumes, bathing suits, what you will, I call them swimsuits. I took the plunge the other day and ordered two metres of swimsuit fabric from eLingeria.de, it being seemingly impossible to find domestically. Now that I have an overlocker, you see, all things are possible. Also, every year we spend a couple of weeks in the family cottage by the lake, with large attached jetty. It's not Rio, but one has standards. I even have a pattern that I like -- the 02/2011 issue of Ottobre has a nice retro-feel pattern. And the kids version has a girl suit. Charlotte would be pleased to have a similar suit to me, I think.
But, has anyone else made one? Is anyone else making one? Can I have tips, please? This was not covered in the patterns I elarned to sew from, and I expect Ottobre (as they do) to assume a certain level of confidence and skill that I haven't necessarily obtained.
