Once again, not a real refashion, as it's a from-scratch with new-bought material. BUT I just wanted to say that you guys! Making swimwear is not as scary as you'd imagine. In fact it's SUPER EASY.
From a pattern I "drafted" (uh, traced around my current suit). It's a little industrial looking as it's for swimming, aquafit and deep water running, as opposed to actual fun. But it fit's PERFECTLY and I've never been able to say that about a swimsuit before. The rest of the skinny is here.
So the moral here is, swimwear = not scary. And if you've been wanting to try it but were wigged out by the idea then you totally should. 'cause if I can do it, you can.
* now I'm going to have Don't Fear The Reaper stuck in my head all day.
