Just a quickie post to show part 2 of the triple swim set. Yesterday was the tankini top. Today, the southern part, changing it to a skirtini.
I made the top from Jalie 2447 Choice of Tankinis, view B (the full-figured version). The bottom I made as a combination of 2447, the full-figured view, and Jalie 3023, Skirtini. I added a pattern piece, a wide waistband with a hidden panel of power mesh (remnant, naturally) that was a variation of the high-waisted tankini bottom in 2447, so that it could have the play of contrasting colors and feminine, flirty skirt as in pattern 3023.
My plan to pair the silver remnant with the dark blue will pave the way for part #3 of the ensemble, which I hope to work on tomorrow, the mesh cover-up.
Are you participating in any festivities for National Sewing Month?
