Woo Hoo! New Jalie 3350 Swimsuit
This is the View A front with the View B back. That front sweetheart neckline is so prettily shaped and the construction method is easy and straightforward.
I made this for Daughter using the size that corresponded to her girth measurement, so it turned out to be a little looser in the chest than ideal since she's pretty tall in proportion to her other measurements. It's no where near a problem, but I'll probably slim down the next one just a tiny bit. I thought the leg openings wouldn't fit since the elastic is only a teeny bit shorter than them, but that too was no problem. Fit perfectly.
I used a swimsuit fabric that was covered in dusty pink flowers (that I never liked) for the lining and I lined the back as well as the front.
All in all, from tracing to final stitch was about 3 hours. Awesome.
