Hello there Sew Retro-ers! I hope you are having a lovely summer. Mine is surprisingly summery and sunny and gave me a chance to flaunt my new Bombshell Swimsuit on the beach.
This is the first swimsuit I ever made and despite some extra engineering steps that went into supporting the bust, sewing this swimsuit was amazingly straightforward. It’s really not a difficult project, especially if your boobs are happy with no extra support and you can just go along and sew everything as per instructions.
If your boobs need extra support, Heather’s super-detailed Sew-Along includes some suggestions for constructing extra support. I will also be posting some inside construction details of my added padding and boning for this swimsuit in a post on my blog later this week.
So, don’t fear the swimsuit! I love my Bombshell and the super retro look it gives me!
