So, we're about to leave to get the Old Man a new suit and me a new bathing suit (he's eyeing a sexy little RL number). I've already gone to the evil MalWart and Targete with no success (DJ did get a cool toy out of the ordeal, however). Now I'm off to the mall.
This is stupid and insane. Bathing suits are just too damn expensive. I've been looking at making my own suit but have certain needs like tummy and top control. Here is a sampling of what I've been looking at:
- Candle on the Hill makes a pattern for a modesty suit which is very appealing to me (I hate walking around half-nakid) but the sizes only run to a 14. Sigh. It's a really nice pattern.
- Paragon Patterns has a high-neck one-piece which is also a distinct possibility. The nice thing is they are multi-size patterns, have instructions for a shelf bra, and give boy-leg options. If I could put cap sleeves on it I'd be set.
