I finished up on a set of swimsuits last night. I love this pattern. Last time I graded down to a size 3 (4 is the smallest size) and this time I used size 5. I used the same fabric for both of them. Personally, I think it’s kind of hideous but it was the favorite for both of the girls. It’s great fabric with fantastic stretch and recovery. I bought one yard of several prints from Fabric.com a while back and it’s all really high quality. They don’t look like they have any right now otherwise I’d post it for you. I’ll get action shots when I can.
For those of you wanting the sewing nitty-gritty: I used a Microtex needle in size 80 for the zig-zag and had to change it once during the process. I used regular ol’ Coats and Clark cotton/poly thread. Nylon is sometimes a hard fabric to work with but it’s not bad if you use a really sharp needle and go slowly.
