I am building bathing suits for some friends so I ordered swatches from Spandex World.

Golds and red, some stretch lace, powernet (girdles, anyone?) and what the HELL?? black mesh with red foil multisize polka dots?? I didn't order this! What does one do with this?? Well, apparently I did. Thank you dyslexia. So I put in another swatch order.

These are the sketches I have right now. The middle one is actually the Cindy Pattern from BurdaStyle. Which is how all of this started. My friend started describing what she wanted and it sounded exactly like the Cindy, with a few stylistic mods of course. The one on the bottom is me playing with ideas for another friend based on a suit she liked. The top one is mine. I want to figure out how to make it strapless and stay up. And then the three of us need a photo shoot on the beach.
