Swimwear Blog Tour


Today I am taking part of the swimwear blog tour, and the best part of it is that I made something for my husband. What? Yes! Can you spot it on today's posters collage below?! 


Let me tell you more about it. 
First things first, I used the Long Beach Board Shorts from Peek-a-Boo pattern shop. Although I follow Amy since the very start I have never used any of her patterns! What? Well yeah, that's true. It just never happened. I jumped at the change of trying one of them right now, AND sewing for my husband at the same time. 


It is official now. I am stepping away from tours and tests for now. I might pop in every now and then, but most of all, I want to find the joy in sewing away, which I lost. Anyway... I found it quite hard to find swimwear fabric around here, at least one my husband and I would like, so of course I did what I always do, dig into my refashion pile. 


I found two pairs of shorts from my husband needing a new life, but I also found a damaged jacket from a cousin. I used this lastest piece and one of the shorts (red red ones) to recycle into new shorts. At first I wasn't really convinced with the mix, but once I was done, it grew on me. I then showed them to their owner and he liked it, which was kind of a relief. I so want to sew more for him. 


I followed the instructions of the pattern, but did mine a bit shorter because I was refashioning and the red shorts I used weren't as long as this one. I reused the lining, but did a new pocket and a new waistband out of the jacket. My favourite feature is the eyelets and cord at the waistband. 



Check out what others did and find some swimwear inspiration...
