    I am always so impressed when I see swimwear. Sewing with that slippery slidey fabric can’t be fun. I do like the colors- and I like the change you made to all one color. I think it looks great (we are always our own worst critics!)

      Thanks Laurie! Most of the swim fabrics I’ve used are suprisingly easy to sew, just like any other knit. It just a matter of practice I think with swim and lingerie sewing. I am glad I switched the suit to all one color too and I know I’m so my own worst critic. :) I think I’m just more picky now, especially about my finishes and fit.

  4. What great fabric and another lovely Nautilus. You have such a lovely beach wardrobe! I think you’re right about the swimsuit fabrics being a lot easier to sew than you would think. My serger much prefers them over other knits like rayon or really thin curling poly/cotton knits. I can’t quite get a clean rolled hem which is a bummer when the serger otherwise does so well, but a standard hem on my sewing machine with a stretch needle and with a zigzag stitch works just fine.

      Thanks Elizabeth! I know I’m much more apprehensive sewing a sheer lightweight fabric or thin knit then swim material. I’m debating right now whether to make another swimsuit- I don’t really need one, but they’re so fun to make up. :)
