Me-Made Sunbathing

Today’s warm enough for a quick bit of sunbathing, in my Me-Made swimsuit from Simplicity 1116. IMG_20170512_150440 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.)

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.
