Sewing UFO: Kwik Sew 1948 Swimsuit

Actually it is probably more of a MIA, I haven't been able to find it for a while now. I used Kwik Sew 1948, and added a bit of length to the gathered section, and added a gathered section to the back too (why do they make swimsuits with nice fronts and backs that do not match the front?). I was about to sew on the elastic when it disappeared. Let me know if any of you find it!!


  1. What a coincidence! I love this colour! What does the back look like? Did you redraft that piece?

    1. When I find it I will take a picture of the back :), I think I made another panel to overlay the back and cut the original back piece so part would be just lining to prevent bulk. I found this copy (had to make it a lot smaller though, it was ginormous!). I might have to re-make it though, I haven't seen it since December when I took the picture :(

  2. cute! love the eggplant color, this is such a flattering design.
