California dreamin’

1 Feb

Oh, swim suits. Why is it so hard to find a good one? I don’t ask for much: just something flattering and girly without being sexy or sporty. I feel like high-waisted bikini bottoms might be the key to this puzzle, but I haven’t seen many that work in real life. When I came across this one from Urban Outfitters, I felt like someone had finally gotten it right. Could it be that the busy print is what makes the bottoms so flattering? I don’t claim to understand it; perhaps it’s science.

Unfortunately, I don’t go swimming enough to warrant paying $37 for half a swim suit. I wonder how hard it out would be to DIY this baby using this burdastyle pattern. Could a crazy print disguise both a muffin top and mediocre sewing skills?
