    4 out of 5 Easy to sew, great style


    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.
