  1. […] I LOVE this suit.  So glad I live in Florida so I have a great excuse to make up a ton of swimwear- it’s just so fun to put together!  This suit also performed great in the water.  Nice and supportive and I love how the silhouette looks a bit modern but also a bit retro.  To see more check out my blog Sew Pomona and read the full post here!

    Wow … a swimsuit. That’s on my list out some where :-)
    Very nice fit and very nice look. It suits you.
    And it looks like a lot of work.
    I think I might try the bombshell swimsuit … hopefully this summer …

      Thank you Rebecca! It was actually a pretty quick sew, but only because I’ve made a few suits now. I just haven’t blogged about the earlier ones yet as this one really turned out the best so far! Slowly getting better! The bombshell does look really nice :)

    So cool!! I wouldn’t have thought of mixing a dress bodice and undies pattern to make a swimsuit. I like how you worked with the fabric pattern on the bodice.

    I had the exact same idea that the Centauree would make an amazing swimsuit – thanks for proving me right! I might have to have a go myself :) You did a fantastic job. Great fabric too!

      Thanks so much Katie! It really worked perfectly! Because the bodice is quite fitted and then has side seams it was super easy to take them in as needed. I just finished my dress version in a lovely madder dyed cotton but am thinking ahead to make a knit version as well! :)
