Ready for the Beach

The ladies in my swimwear class were busy finishing up their suits today.

One lady decided to add coloured piping to the princess seams. But no fabric could be found unti....we used the wrong side of the main fabric.
Here's what the piping looks like in the seam. Pretty slick, eh?
Here's the back of the suits. This bra back construction allows the suit to be as suopportive as a bra!
Remember the ruching panels from yesterday? Here they are in the suit along with silver grey flanges.
The first suit to be finished was this brown and turquoise suit
And the second was the ruched suit
Out of 7 students in the class, 2 finished completely, and two more were very close to finishing. The rest were quite happy to finish up at home. I don't blame them if they were tired...two days of learning new techniques can be exhausting!
