What I'm working on now...

Saturday, April 30, 2011

So I ended my stint at the mechanics shop on Thursday, around noon. While I'd like to say I'm sad to be closing this chapter in my life... I'm not. I am so happy to never have to go back there again! While I'm happy to know a little more about cars, and am very proud of myself for persevering through it, I'm so very glad it's over! I am excited to start my new job on Monday morning.


So, between yesterday and today, between grocery shopping trips, making dinner, and cleaning, I made two bathing suits. The first, a pink floral frilly number, and the second a goldenrod malliot (which is my favourite, and I will keep the sample for myself).


I purchased several yards of spandex on line, and it arrived within days! I've been wanting to delve into swim wear for a while now. I've always had a hard time finding bathing suits I am comfortable in. While I am petite, I've got an ample chest, and curvy hips and I feel like I should be on Baywatch or in some sleazy magazine whenever I put on a bikini... not to mention the discomfort of constantly having to make sure your bosom is still covered by the little fabric triangles...



I'm thinking these will be much more my style... besides, if you ask me, a little modesty is very, very sexy.



Besides swimsuits, I've been working on another soft bra, and filling orders. Last week I got a ton of orders that I am trying to get finished up before starting my new job.


For now... I have a headache. Time to curl up on the couch and enjoy some relaxation time!

And remember, tomorrow I draw for the Give Away winner!

  2. Wow, love both of them. Very pretty--the pink is so fun and flirty without being too revealing like a bikini.

  5. The bathing suits are lovely! I agree about wearing a one piece, too. I think what you choose to reveal, and what you don't, says a lot. Not to mention, Victoria Beckham wears one pieces. Enough said.

  9. Those are great swimsuits, very original! I especially love the design of the maillot. I really like the fringe on the bra's cup edge. It almost looks like selvedge, but fancy.

    And congrats on finishing the mechanic job! Now on to bigger and better things :)
