Kwik Sew 3779KSP
Sorry about posting my order sheet but my scanner doesn't want to play! One of the tops isn't showing up either but is Vogue 8392; just a simple top with neckline tucks and some interesting sleeve options (one puffy, one tiered frllls and one just plain short) and an option for a neck band. I need tops and I am sick of buying cheap tops that don't fit when I have lots of lovely material.
Tafe is starting next week so I will have to really manage my time better to be able to fit in some therapeutic sewing. I am really keen to make up the togs .. I made my little boy a pair of boy leg togs that I copied from a pair we bought in Cyprus when on holidays in August 2009. He loved those and everytime he put the ones I made on he said "I don't like these togs, mum ..... I LOVE them!" They are only my second pair (the others were a pair of ordinary togs I made in a hurry) - so I haven't had any swimwear sewing experience... but I have a pair cut for training togs and now my new Kwik sew pattern too! From my limited experience, it isn't hard to make them but my technique is lacking and I keep looking at Blooms Fabric Obsession and Sew-4-Fun to see how they do it.
On another tangent, I also ordered some Birkenstock from Germany as mine are falling apart and I live in them. It is at least 1/3 cost of buying them here in the shops and I always get about 2 or 3 pairs every two years or so. Have a look here German Shoes Online. They are very reliable and it is great value!
We also had our holiday in Adelaide ... we went to the Zoo to see the Pandas. They are there for 10 years and you must book a session. My friend was told they are more active in the morning so she booked the morning session for us and boy were we rewarded!
This is the togs in action in Adelaide in my friend's pool.
Ill take photos of my poor technique soon to show how poor they look up close but my son loves them and that's important ... I have another pair cut out for him so I'll finish them up and hope my technique gets better.
