Graphic Dot Swimsuit


I was running out of PowerNet which I use to do a front lining/shelf bra in my swimsuits and got some at the ASG Convention Vendor Hall from Anne St Clair of Needle Nook Fabric.   I've been collecting fold over elastic for a while and I have some fun prints and colors.  I decided this crimson with black dot elastic would go beautifully with the graphic black and white print.  The fabric is some I got in the LA  Fashion District with Kathi Rank. 
I thought it needed a little something extra so I added a bow, and I have to say I think it's darling.   Who doesn't love a bow?!

Thank you Sharon! Have you done a swimsuit as part of your wonderful active wear wardrobe? If not, then I think it's time you did! :)

Hi Liana,

I was in your Marfy Magic class at ASG in St. Louis. Great class. You inspired me to try and sew up the two Marfy patterns I have had for a while. I have one question. Is the standard cup size on these patterns a B?

Thanks, Shelby

Hi Shelby,
I'm so glad I was able to get you started on your Marfy patterns. I believe the cup size on Marfy is a B, just like the Big 4. There's a link to a little discussion here that might interest you.
