I'm so glad you guys voted on my skirt designs! I was afraid no one would. So, thanks!!
Coming in close second with 7 votes was...
Now for the next set of designs! I've never made a swimsuit before, so this will be an interesting experience. It looked pretty easy from the tutorials I read, and I'm going to try!
I found this pretty chevron fabric on Girl Charlee that I think I'm going to go with.
Which design do you like best?
#1--I think asymmetry is interesting (you may have guessed by the clothing I made for Project Sewn, with my green "signature look" dress, asymmetrical draped shirt, and the high-low skirt). So I wanted to try a one-shoulder swimsuit.
#2--I really like this design. I feel like swimsuits tend to make my already smallish bust seem even smaller. I think the gathering at the front and the band under the bust will help with that.
#3--Here's another one-shoulder look. I'm not quite sure which one I prefer. I like the contrast and interest of having the black on the bottom of version 2, but I think it does make the suit look more sporty, and I'm not exactly planning on doing laps down the pool while I'm holding a baby and keeping a close eye on a preschooler...
#4--I really like this design also. It has gathering in front and the band under the bust like #2, so I think it will be flattering for the same reasons. I also like how this halter is high in the front, since halters tend to be low-cut, so it's different.
