Today’s warm enough for a quick bit of sunbathing, in my Me-Made swimsuit from Simplicity 1116. I was a bit thinner when I made this, so it’s a skosh tight. Definitely for backyard sunbathing!
It wasn’t as hard to make as I thought. Spandex is very forgiving, after all. I got the material and the lining from Stretch House, a shop in New York’s Garment District that just sells spandex fabrics.
If I had to make another of these swimsuits, I’d use a self-lining. Despite a soul-sucking amount of understitching, the lining still shows a bit. (The extra 10 pounds don’t help either, truth be told.)
