Sewing swimsuits

Posted by Stitchblade | 7:25 PM Sep 28, 2008

I figure if I want to have them done for next summer that I probably should start figuring this out now. Have any of you ever sewn swimwear? My idea is to sew the girls really cool 1950's style children's swimsuits, you know...ones that actually COVER. Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated. If you have a horror story and want to tell me just to forget it then that would be good too, I sure don't want to bite off more than I can chew!
