Vintage swimwear

I adore vintage-style one-pieces, except that they are always expensive. Why is that? It’s not that much extra fabric… but, I digress. I wanted a classic style but with a modern fit. I decided to go for it. Yes, I am a beginner sewer, and can't follow a pattern. So I winged it! I figured that it's worth a try and if I fail I only lost 20$ and lets face it I love a good project.. So I ordered swimwear fabric online (the stuff in stores is blah) Here are my attempts at a swimsuit..

It was a fun project and I got to wear them in the bahamas!
