mccall's 5025

I am going to come right out and say this is the bravest thing I have ever done, next to maybe having Cora. But at least when I had Cora I was medicated.

I made a swimsuit.
And I am showing it to the world...on me.
A month before my 10 year H.S. reunion.

Without going into too much detail, I have realized that having stretch marks, a soft tummy and big thighs are so far from the worst thing that can happen. In fact, I am pretty darn lucky. So here is the suit in all its glory.

I actually only had the pattern, no instructions for this so, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. And I love the print.

1976, eat your heart out. Oh, and I slept in curlers last night for a party I went to today. That is why I am rocking some sweet hair!!

The pattern -


The Suit - 



I figure if I can show it to Las Vegas tomorrow, I can show it to you. Off to make a cocktail....
