I have been working on this suit slowly but surely for the last couple weeks. It uses the bottoms from McCall's 8331, which I was delighted to find fit me rather well straight from the pattern. I tightened up the leg holes a little and made a few other tweaks to make them more beach appropriate, but the chances are good that I'll be sewing a few pair straight from the pattern just to wear as shorts.
I still need to attach straps, hem the shorts, and sew in the closures, but it's coming along! I am a slow seamstress anyway, so throw in a holiday, some family fun, and a trip to the Biltmore, and I'm just moseying along.... no rush, just when we thought it was already summer we'll be having lows in the thirties for the next few days! Brrrrrrrr!
