This picture was posted on Facebook a few days ago and I thought I would share it. For me, it really is the truth. I started sewing because I needed clothes to wear. It would have been a very sad situation if I had not learned to sew. When I was in high school, you could take four years of sewing classes, but one year was mandatory. Really, mandatory!! Now it's rarely even offered as a class. So I've seen sewing go from being a mandatory class in high school, to completely falling out of favor, to being a sought after passion by so many young women today, and I am so very happy!!!
One young woman that has a passion for sewing and making beautiful and fun things to wear is Heather Lou of www.closetcasefiles.com. Last year she released the Bombshell Swimsuit pattern.
I bought the pattern because I really needed a new swimsuit and I didn't feel like shopping for one. From the reviews I read about the swimsuit, I felt that this would be a safe bet.
Since I've never made the suit before, I used a piece of spandex that I've had for quite a while. I thought it would make a good wearable muslin, and it did!
Go get in the water and have some fun!!!
