morgsmorgan 's Thoughts:

So….I just got back from the beac h a little bit ago, it was lovely!! I decided to wear the swimmers that i made…see i have trouble finding a swimsuit i like…i’ve looked everywhere and i dislike something everytime, you could say its my one anal vice. anyhow, i’ve been wanting (for a couple of years now) a nice modernish version of a high waisted swimsuit and i couldn’t find one modern enough while still vintage enough so i decided i’d bang this a la DIY and now after a long day of arduous (if thats spelled right) labour with the sewing machine and a day of fun at the beach i give you…MY swimmers by me (Morgs)

haha i totally agree with you- i made my own high waisted bikini bottom last summer because i couldnt find one anywhere. yours is much more creative than mine though, it looks great!

wow i need to learn how to make a swimsuit. all the cute suits have to be like 300 dollars. any cheap ones most of the time are really boring haha, i must try this. yours are so cute on you

ohh yeah i can barely believe it myself...its so frustrating to do swimwear since the fabric is stretchy and whatnot...but having tried it a few times previously and adjusting my sewwing machine acurrately i think this time worked out better as a result.

Wow, that's awesome! I would think making a swimsuit would be incredibly difficult due to the spandex-ish material. Well, it looks great and these photos are lovely!
morgsmorgan
morgsmorgan on June 22
Thank you!!! yes it is so frustrating...but i had attempted it a few times before and so this time i was a little bit more prepared...but yes i hate how stretchy the fabric is...i just had to be really anal about it and do everything as exact as posible...i couldn't just do like i normally do and free ball it..."a little cut here and stitch it up that should be good."
