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. I prepared the bands for the back ties and the side wrap. Sewing them as a loop and turning them inside out. I pinned and sewed the bands (ties) on the right front piece (wrap) and backside.

Unlined Jacket

I finally finished my light jacket after almost a month working on it. This jacket supposed to be my entry to  #sewyourwardrobebasics  a sewing challenge on Instagram last month but I couldn't make it on time due to lack of sewing time and bad planning. Anyway, better late than never and I'm glad to have this type of jacket in my wardrobe 😊 Jacket pattern: Budastyle unlined jacket 07/2008 size 38, I made full arm adjustment, skip the belt loops, finished the seam and hem allowances with Hongkong seams method and sewed the buttons and buttonholes. For the fabric, I used a cotton blend from stash, bought two years ago during our trip to Tokyo and I made the bias tape from my dress that I don't wear anymore. For the buttons, I reused my husband's suit buttons and glad they were matched.
