Because the weather outside is amazing ...it's Sunday and ...obviously ....not a work day....here comes my blog :)
I don't know about you but I never seem to have the time to do it all. Between working two jobs, cooking cleaning, taking care of my little one , crocheting is like a dear hobby I don't seem to fit inside my daily schedule as much as I should.
With several projects started….well not several but two…I keep on dreaming of a crocheted bathing suit.
Since I am fighting to get back in shape after giving birth through a C-section , among other things on my list is also making the abdominal area to look decent enough to wear a bikini. However …since Rome was not built in a day , I am still considering crocheting a tankini style bathing suit or a one piece model with a lacy cover for the mid- section.
So …while browsing for patterns and patterns ….and patterns my heart set on 3 particular models I see fit for mommies like me with a figure that needs a little more work until it can fit into a pre–pregnancy bikini.
Light and Practical
I personally love the bra on this design. Extremely versatile , yarn wise. Depending on the yarn you can wing it in any size possible. Thicker cotton will make a bigger size. I recomend adding lining to keep the structure in place, give the design a bit of body and prevent stretching.
Diva and simply diva
Make no mistake...this is not the design perfect only for the perfect figure. The model may be a silfide but the design is ideal for hour glass figures. The lower side is extremely generous and can be easily transformed into a cute cover for larger hips while the bra line can easily accompany fuller breasts by increasing the number of spokes according to your regular bra size.
Cool Looking Tankini
I simply love the design of this tankini. Personally I would combine the lower part of the top with the bra design of the first model sinse my breasts are not exactly trimmed due to breastfeeding . However , this is the ideal choice for hidding stretchmarks and look casually pretty. Once again adding a fabric lining will prevent cotton from stretching and give the design a chance to go through water and not lose shape.
So ...which one is more tempting for you?
