Closet Case Files Bombshell Swimsuit

Phil and I have just arrived home from a couple of weeks in Vietnam. I packed a few new garments, which I’ll blog soon, and bought some fabric which I’ll blog too. I also packed some old favourites, including this Bombshell Swimsuit which I made (unbelievably to me, it feels like no time at all) four years ago.

As noted on my original blog post about this swimsuit, I struggled a little when making it. I think those four years since have made all the difference to my sewing skills, and I suspect making my next swimsuit (probably the Closet Case Patterns Sophie) will go a lot smoother.

I don’t swim very often and I think this is the first time my Bombshell has been for a swim in the sea, so I thought it was fitting to take some photos. In addition to my sewing skills, my blog photography (and also my hair!) has improved since 2014, which seemed like another good reason to take some new photos. Plus I think it’s good to celebrate those garments which stay in our wardrobes long-term (as well as new makes) here on our blogs.

Enjoy the weekend. I’m going to go back to very slowly unpacking, and generally being lazy after a couple of busy weeks travelling and sightseeing.
