I sewed up my very first swimsuit, The Coco Cay Color block Tankini by Peek-a-Boo Pattern shop.
I am still getting to know The Contessa. I make myself sew all knits on her because she has some awesome knit stitches. BUT I am very much still learning it all. With that said, this suit did not come out perfect. And that is OK. I am showing you anyway. Why not share the learning process?
It is most definitely wearable, but there are places that I could have been more consistent. I also didn’t hem it. I want to master the double needle (which I have never used) before I tackle that. Good thing this swimwear will not fray, so no rush.
You can see here where I didn’t pull the elastic tight enough in the shoulders, and a little too tight around her shoulder blades.
She does love it in all it’s sparkly purpleness.
I do love Amy’s patterns. They are so easy to follow and she has so very many to choose from. I will be sewing this one up again.
Have you ever sewn a swimsuit before?
