So, I took the plunge this morning.
I have been reading up on making bathing suits for a while now. I had a pattern, and fabric, for over a year. Today I finally decided to try it out.
The pattern (McCalls 9374) had excellent instrucions on sewing with this kind of fabric. It came together quite easy, and turned out great!
I did have to extend the torso for her, but that was a simple fix.
Now she is all ready for swimming lessons next week!
