I finally finished the swimsuit bottoms and they turned out great!
There wasn’t really much left to do, so I started where I left off by sewing up the side seams.
Then I folded over the waist band and pinned it in place. I used a zig zag stitch around the waist band and main bottom pieces.
I tried them on and they fit great. Even though my husband knew I was planning on sewing myself a swimsuit he asked why I bought one! (he must have forgotten I started sewing it)
