Swimsuit Fail

That was pretty much worse than shopping for a swimming suit.
I attempted the 70's Stretch 'n Sew pattern I have with some of the swim fabric I bought from Fabric.com a while ago on sale.  I used the measurements on the envelope.  Apparently, those measurements are crap.
The top part of this suit does not cover what is supposed to be covered!  The torso is super short on this thing.  And I have a regular to short torso, so that means the pattern is reeeeeealllly short!
And listen, I know my butt is big, but I'm going to need about four more inches added on to the hips and that low back that happens to be, like, the main reason I bought this pattern? It shows crack.  Seriously, my butt wouldn't fit in the suit!
Women in the 70's were waistless and buttless apparently.

Here it is, lying in shame.

I can see the potential, though, so all hope is not yet lost.  Hopefully, the next version will not be so scandalous and, well, plain ol' ridiculous.

  1. It has character. The rolex replica one for me, like others comments below. A railroad minute track runs the periphery of the dial, with a well proportioned minute hand reaching all the way to said track and the hour hand sitting comfortably just inside the hour markers. The moon face itself is made of platinum like most aspects of this replica watches and the indicator also displays the age of the moon in 6 day intervals. This is a rather unusual feature and provides a measurement of exactly how many replica watches sale the moon has progressed. The rolex replica uk of the disc is adorned with applied stars, presumably also in platinum although rolex watches havent specified as such. Speaking of the strap, the hublot replica is hand stitched using a combination of silk and platinum thread, and is secured with a half Maltese cross shaped folding replica watches sale in 950 platinum.
