Finally the Bombshell

Hello people!

Just a few snapshots of my last creation the Bombshell swimsuit here. I followed the sew-along and everything went fine. I was able to understand the directions, but my sewing is not the finest… :-) My seams ending up being too bulky, I wasn´t lucky with the serger and returned to  my sewing machine´s zig-zag stitch, which I was more successful with (no broken needles this time). I guess the result will we neater if I happen to sew a second one, let´s say this first one is like an unwearable muslin.

I drafted my size with a little upgrade around the hips and it just fitted ok, except that I should have inserted some extra support like bikini cups, but I wanted to finish it so deadly (cause you have to use special needles in your machine, and it´s no use changing it every time) that I went straight to the end. In my favour I have to say that I have been ten days abroad for my summer holidays, so I haven´t been aall this time to finish it.

And the swimsuit looks like this:

Beautiful, isn´t it? ;-)

    Your swimsuit looks so fabulous!! That’s so disappointing that it’s not wearable. I wonder if you can tweak it here and there so that it would work. Hope so, as it’s really nice.

    It looks good to me, what’s not wearable about it? The fabric is brilliant with this style.

      Hi Pella. May be I´m a bit of a perfectionist (as my horoscope Virgo can confirm)
      I don´t like the bulky seams and also, don´t think the upper part of the swimsuit could stand the attack of an angy wave! :-D :-D

    • cristina says:

      Oh, thank you very much. I´m planning to sew a T-shirt with some knit I bought on sale. I just can´t live without trying the twin-needle! :-)

    It looks great, love the fabric!

    • cristina says:

      Yes, it was love at first sight…If only was it in woven besides in lycra…but it is not. I think this kind of fabrics are used for sports competitions, more than for swimsuits. That´s why they are so classy… :-)

    This is gorgeous!! I love the fabric you chose. Makes me want to pull my pattern out right now, but I’m saving it for January when it’s dreary and cold cold cold – what better time to sew a bathing suit? :)

  16. Smash Knits says:

    This is beautiful! Love the fabric you chose. Makes me so antsy to get cracking on my Bombshell, but I’m saving it for the middle of January when it’s dreary and bitter cold in the hopes it will cheer me up :)

    Madre mía, como me gusta! Ayer he tirado a la basura una licra preciosa porque no ha habido modo de transformarla en algo parecido a un bañador. Menos mal que existe la licra gordita que se trabaja mejor. Cuando sea capaz de hacer uno de estos seré muy feliz, lo sé!

    • cristina says:
