Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie
Let's see here, last time I went swimming....yeah that'd be about 4 years ago. Do I see a sunny beach or sparkling pool in my near future?? Likely not but is that gonna stop me from making the kick ass Bombshell Swimsuit by miss Heather Lou of Closet Case Files?? Hellz no!! I'm totally in love! I've always adored these 1950's style silhouettes and they are so hard to find RTW without costing a fortune. It's a modest suit yet can still be sexy and cover your whole ass to boot. The best of both worlds. Gone are the days of me frolicking around in a two piece bikini. I'm over it. The older I get the more I wanna cover. For me this swimsuit just affirms the saying less is more.
I'm totally digging the blue version...halter neck, gathered bust (always a good look for us tiny boobied gals).. and can we just sit and adore the the backside for awhile??... A centre back seam with all that ruching, ~swooon~!!

I just recently started following Closet Case Files (yes I have been living under a rock). I have to say Heather Lou really knocked it out of the park with her first ever pattern! Like some of you I'm rather intimidated when it comes to even thinking about trying to attempt a swimsuit. I still snatched up this pattern in exactly 2.7 seconds of discovering it. That's how good it is. What's even gooder?? Heather Lou is hosting a sewalong starting on the 17th. The last two hours of my workday were spent secretly clicking back and forth between various browsers consisting of work (spreadsheets, boo!) and fun (swimsuit fabric, yay!). This suit has endless possibilities...
You can't go wrong with polka dots...
Or a retro print...

Oh shit I can't decide, is one of each too much for a person who's feet rarely skim the water? Maybe I'll just move to Florida to have an excuse to make one in every color. I'm so excited about this pattern I can barely stand it. Anyone else feeling my excitement?
Well it's off to bed to dream about warm beaches, fancy drinks with umbrellas and soaking up the sun in a swimsuit made out of bombshell goodness.
