A Cherry Bomb

Last summer I spotted the cutest vintage/retro cherry print swimsuit.  I held off on buying it because I didn’t want to spend the $90.  I’m so glad I did because I was able to make an almost exact copy using the Bombshell Swimsuit pattern by Closet Case Files.

This pattern is just that, the bomb! I love everything about it. It’s so flattering and still covers without being frumpy.  I still can’t believe how easy it was to make a swimsuit.  If your considering making your own stop all the if,  ands,  and buts and buy this pattern.  It’s a dream.

See how happy I am!?  You’ll be that happy too, promise!  Check out my blog post for more pics and construction details.

  • Love this! Has anyone large busted made this suit? Did it need significant alteration? I’m in love with this pattern but I’m an F cup and I’ve only seen much less “well-endowed” woman making this suit so far. Would so love to rock this though!
