By which I mean: sewing swimsuits! I’ve never had the courage to sew my own, but I’m increasingly frustrated by the lousy quality and fit of most swimsuits I’ve come across. After poking around a bit on the Pattern School site, I’m a little more inspired to forge out on my own once I’ve gotten some stretch sewing under my belt. While not aimed at beginners, the site says that “everything you need to design women’s swim or dancewear patterns is already here. By combining the various elements of each lesson a design student should be able to create any number of designs.” (Via Petit Main Sauvage.)
