Found this ultra high cut one piece last week JUST in time for what has come to be our annual boat party on Lake Lanier. Nothing less than heaven sent!
I still find myself stammering over vintage pieces that fit my frame like perfection. Hands down...this is the most flattering bathing suit I own. More proof I was born in the wrong era or something. lol.
Started with a serious soak in my go-to Tide/Woolite combo before changing out the lining.
I found a very similar material from Joann's to switch out the lining. Trace the old lining with a pen leaving yourself a quarter of an inch seam allowance. Cut out your pattern.
After snipping out the new lining, I began sewing it in from back to front. Tuck the lining under the elastic and begin your stitch. The whole process was surprisingly simple!
Heads-up! If you're a small and looking to score something similar, GimmeShelterVintage has a more unique version of this one. Major plans to make a copycat version for myself.
