I'm so excited to write this post! I've been wanting to make my daughter a swimsuit for well over a year.
Peekaboo's Pattern's Paradise Bay Tankini. The pattern was really well thought out and well written. I was a bit nervous about sewing the spandex (I had never tried before?) but the tutorial walked me through it step by step. Plus-- Amy is one of the nicest bloggers I know. I first talked to her when I was transferring some posts from my family blog to this one- and she kindly emailed me some hints, tips and encouragement. It was such a comfort to know that if my sewing machine ate up all that spandex, or if I ran into any other trouble, I could just email her for support.
My kids often don't like what I make, and they turn their nose up at modeling for pictures. But this time, she followed me around for hours while I was making her 'simmy suit!'. I can't wait until the weather is good enough to go for a swim!
