Ginger Swimsuit

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My stripes! It was my first time working with stripes and it was so difficult to match them, especially as I was lining the entire thing. It would have been much easier to baste the pieces together, but I wasn't about to take extra (time saving) steps. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you've worked with elastic and knits before, you'll be fine. Otherwise, practice! Also, a serger is a must. I used a regular zig zag for some of the seams and you can tell - it does not look as professional as the rest of the suit does.
