Black and white swimsuit for Eva - 3/2016 #27

I wanted to do a more fancy swimsuit for Eva after the 1st attempt. I used the same patern from Ottobre 3/2016 #27 - size 92 just a few more changes:
   We been down with stomach flu this last few days, both kids and me so so project didn't turned up as sharp as I wanted. It is still cute and I did quite a lot of experimenting with it. I tried to line it in a thin mesh so it will hide all the blocking and skirt seams.
   I used decorated elastic for shoulder straps and seam finishing.
   I added a new block to the front and then skipped the side seams on the black portion having just back and skirt seams.
   I tried to add 2 rows of ruffles as the skirt.
   Somehow I am not really pleased with it even if it is cute. I will need to do more.


  1. Summer is here..... Felicitari draga mea, esti spornica si dornica de noi experiente. Astept sa ne impartasesti impresiile tale despre coverstitch sau uber machine, cum vrei sa-i spui.

    1. Mersi. Am uberul de 1 sau 2 ani ( nu mai imi amintesc decat ca era pe la inceput de an ) deja cred si il iubesc. A imbunatatit substrantial calitatea tivurilor. Am avut putin emotii sa il comand in Olanda da sunt f multumita de el si inca nu am avut probleme. Ma bucur mult ca mi-am facut curaj sa incerc costume de baie. Mai am inca multe materiale faine pt Eva si Andrei asa ca probabil o sa le mai lucrez.

  2. Very cute! I thought it's your swim suit at first site ;^_^ I would like to make mine for summer. This post is very informative for me!
