The Bombshell Swimsuit: A Review

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

It's Wednesday, which around here lately has meant absolutely nothing, except that I probably wasn't going to find the time to post. But *ta-da* I'm here today and doing double duty by posting photos for "What I Wore Wednesday" {although I'm actually going to be wearing this tomorrow for the 4th} AND giving you my review on the Bombshell swimsuit pattern by Heather of Closet Case Files.

I stumbled upon this post over at Sew,Mama, Sew. Which led me here. And then I followed that little bunny trail to Closet Case Files. Boy am I glad that I clicked through all of those links because this just might be my very favorite sewing project EVER!

Swimsuit fabric has been happily hanging out in my fabric stash since I went on a little Lycra binge last summer. Unfortunately I never mustered up the courage to attempt a swimsuit-- which I had planned on doing for Missy Parker. Then I found the Bombshell and I figured that I had might as well throw caution to wind and "Go big" or "Go Home!" Right? Right.

Well, lucky for me, Heather did a super-stellar job at drafting this pattern. I was shocked at how simply it came together. And when I slipped it on, it was swimwear love. Which, come on, I'm a thirty-something momma, "swimsuit" & "love" haven't been spoken in the same sentence since I was 17. I adore the throwback vintage look and ruched details are ALWAYS flattering. My favorite thing/s about this suit is the ruching up the center back AND how the bottom comes down low and doesn't creep up {you KNOW what I mean}.



There you have it. 

I foresee many of these little bathing beauties in my future! 

Thank you, Heather, for one incredible pattern!!!

    1. Aww!!! Thank you SO much, Heather! Everyone is raving about your pattern over on my Facebook page. All those tears were absolutely worth it! But for the record, I would've cried lots of tears when pattern drafting too. I almost cry when I have to grab my seam ripper. ;) Hugs! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! {I think that a black version for my mom is next up on the list!}
