I made a SWIMSUIT!! A real actual, wearable swimsuit. This is definitely my proudest sewing moment to date. I used Heather's Bombshell Swimsuit pattern that is just sew hot right now and even though its the middle of winter I had to get in on the action.

I was totally intimidated to start with and fully expected to sweat and slave and maybe cry a little but it was actually a really enjoyable sew. I followed the Sewalong which broke the whole thing down into neat bite sized steps and just did a bit each night. There was nothing brainstraining, even the little section where you have to work out a percentage of elastic (maths eek!) came and went without dramas. 

The fabric is a photographic print of a beach scene and the coolest swimsuit fabric I've ever laid eyes on...
