Cover Designs is a feature in which I try to match up the outfit on a book cover with a dress pattern and sometimes even potential fabric matches as well.
This cover is really striking, and it's made me realize I haven't done a cover with swimwear before. When I saw this I thought both that it was a really seasonable cover, and secondly, that this looks a lot like a Closet Case Bombshell suit!
This would be an easy one to copy with this classic Indie pattern. Just buy some classy black swimwear fabric, like this lycra-spandex chlorine resistant option at Emerald Erin Bra & Swim Shop on Etsy.
Or go a little wild and change things up a tad with this black and white polka dot swimwear fabric, also at Emerald Erin Bra & Swim Shop.
Then finish things off by making yourself a floppy sunhat using this free pattern (or Vogue 8891) and you'll be ready to hit the sand!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Nice- the Bombshell is a really nice pattern, I made one up a while back, but it still sits unfinished as that plunge front is really VERY low and I need to add some modesty to make it wearable for actual swimming!ReplyDelete
I have the pattern but I haven't made it up yet -- I have a fear of swimwear! Maybe I should try it -- but I'd probably use the non-plunge front view.Delete
I would very much like to look like the book cover when I sit on the beach. But alas, not to be so. But your pattern choice is good.ReplyDelete
Haha! Me too. Alas...Delete
