Here we go again! I don't know if you remember the last time I made a version of these (only a short month ago!)? Anyhow, I stupidly used a fabric with cute sparkly dots for the top bodice portion. Thoses cute dots continue to be a pain in my a$$!! Everytime the girls put on those suits, I hear complaints that the dots are scratchy and itchy, even though I painstakenly cut off all of the dots on the inside of the turned over hem. So, even though I think the others are far cuter, I made new suits for the girls with no scratchy and itchiness to complain about! I made a hair scrunchy to match the suit....I am going to have to make another one. I didn't think it would even stay in my younger dd's hair, but she made me try and it worked....so one more of those to make!I just figured out that this makes ten of these suits in different variations that I have made now! At $40-$50 a pop to purchase one, I have saved $400! I figure it costs me about $3 a suit to make, at most! I have been using material from my stash that I had purchased for swimsuits, so maybe these are almost free! :) Sewer logic!
I do have something more interesting brewing on the back burner. I traced out a pattern from Ottobre 2/ 2009 for a pair of capris. I have a fabric in stash in mind for them, they are a black fabric with cute ladies in beachwear on them. Stay tuned!
