I want to make a swimsuit before the summer is over and I have just the pattern: a 70s Vogue pattern for a 31 bust. If I am going to make my own swimsuit, I want it to be "memorable" and "unique." So I journeyed across Chicago yesterday to Discount Textile Outlet in Pilsen. I have been there twice, but I distinctly remember their wall of spandex in insane prints.
So I went, I pondered and I selected this shocking, gold, faux snakeskin.
Awwwww yeah. I bought some nude lining as well. Nude was 2.95 a yard and the print was 4.95. So cheap. I also went on a quest to their basement where there are thousands of belt buckles. I found two possible rings for the stomach. They were 25 cents each, so I can decide later...
I'm so excited! I'm also going to try to figure out my zig-zag foot. So either I have an amazing swimsuit to wear to the beach this weekend, or I'm out ten bucks and I learned how to use the zig-zagger. Win win!
