New Swimsuit!

Summer is just around the corner which means SWIMSUITS! When I first saw this pattern, I fell in love. It's modest, vintage, cute, and my style. Every pattern I found was sold. FINALLY, I found this one on Etsy and ordered it right away. I'm going to use the Gingham red check spandex/nylon fabric. The pattern should be here Friday. I'M SO EXCITED!
