This pattern is an excellent pattern to use for your first swimsuit. The instructions are easy to follow and the step by step illustrations are exact. There are 2 items I would say are an issue in the pattern. It only goes up to a UK 18 and it is pretty flattering to a fuller figure so it would have been nice if the pattern sizes went a bit larger for curvier ladies. The second issue is the instructions for attaching the elastic to the leg are not very detailed which is an issue for a beginner. I had to watch a youtube video to get it right after trying to just sew it on without further instruction. I used 4 way lycra stretch and I lined the bottoms with nude swimsuit liner. I also used swim cups in the bust slipped between the 2 layers of fabric for modesty.
