DIY Wrap Swimsuit ( Third Version)

Here is the last garment I made last month, a wrap-style swimsuit made from lycra fabric from my stash. I made two similar swimsuits before and I was happy with the fit. So, I was okay with the process and was sure it would turn out as well as the previous ones.  The process took me two days, just right before our holiday. And I immediately packed it as soon as it finished.  I love this wrap swimsuit, the design hides the fatty tummy and is comfortable to wear for swimming. Also, the wrap style adds something special, so girly and stylish. For the pattern, I used my self-draft (TNT: tried and true pattern) and the sewing process was started by cutting the fabric pieces, sewing the elastic on the front lining and continuing to pin the necessary parts.

Make A Garment A Month - December plan...

Hello lovely readers! I am so sorry for my absence, I am still here sewing some stuff but I haven't had time to update the blog post. So, today I'd love to share a quick update of my December plan for MAGAM challenge . I have chosen my pattern, fabric and nations. It will be a simple but pretty party dress for me to wear on Christmas dinner. For the pattern, I will use Burdastyle Embellished Tunic Dress 11/2013  size 34 with adjustments on the neckline, waist and hips. For the fabric, I will use 2 yards of med weight knit ponte in black color that more than three years stay inside my stash and as I don't have passementerie trim, I will sew some pearls on the front slit and neck edge.   Have a lovely and creative Monday to you all!
