There’s a Bombshell in My Future

As I ponder my next sewing moves, all I can think of is: Hello, summer! The Perfect Pattern Parcel has great timing. I have been eyeing the Bombshell swimsuit pattern for a couple weeks, and with a trip to Virginia Beach on the horizon this July, now is the time to make it happen! (PPP #3 includes the Bombshell pattern – yeah, doggie!) I plan to make the view on the right.

The world of spandex fabric confuses the heck out of me – thus, my delay in buying fabric for the Bombshell or for the Fehr Trade Duathlon Shorts, for that matter. I finally stumbled upon a post about swimwear fabric that made it all click, and I think I’m on the right track. The Fabric Fairy (literally) will be bringing me this lovely red polka dot fabric and nude swimwear lining:

This should be fun! While the Bombshell has been described by some as a somewhat challenging make, I think it will be challenging in a good way for me – just learning new techniques. I have more experience sewing with knits and shirring elastic than anything else (which does not seem to be the norm – but those are the clothes I like!) so I expect this to be a fun one.

Bring on summer!
