I swim at the pool all year round and at the beach quite often in the warmer months. So I'm not opposed to making another suit. These are the swimsuits I have made or refashioned thus far:
|A RTW refashioned swimsuit. The body was too long so I cut it to make it look like a mock tankini. Good for swimming.|
|My first self-made swimsuit! Kwik Sew 2690|
|My 2nd try at Kwik Sew 2690 - Love!|
|Kwik Sew 3503 - The horizontal neckline and the floral fabric makes me look wider.|
|A modified Kwik Sew 2797 - My most beloved swimsuit. I wear this all the time because it's easier to get in and out with the front zipper.|
|A refashioned old RTW swimsuit. Unfortunately it's still a bit loose - not practical for swimming.|
After looking at tonnes of pictures at Pinterest, I have to figure out how to choose the design of my next swimsuit to the following:
A simple tankini top with high waisted bottom?
A zip front swim vest with bottom?
A regular 2 piece bikini with a matching rashguard on top?
Or a Swimdress that can be worn as a top or a dress with a regular bottom?
What do you think? What would be a good design for my next swimsuit that I can actually swim in?
