I am a strike seamstress for some Canadian companies. Im sure I’ve mentioned it before. One of them had this design custom created by a watercolour artist and turned into fabric. So I Made this swimsuit for my daughter. Swimsuits are a nightmare to make, but I love the sweet design and hopefully she will be able to wear it this summer.
What is a strike seamstress?
You took the words out of my mouth
@Dfabbric that’s awesome, the fabric is fab, I’m jealous if you routinely get to play with new fabric designs!
It’s a really cute design with the ruffles! Hope she will get to wear it soon.
That is utterly adorable!
I would like to know what this is too!
Very cute swim suit! I bet she loves it!
A strike seamstress is someone who gets fabric samples from a company to make items to advertise the fabric. These fabrics are on preorder for a set amount of time, so you would order the quantity and type of fabric (cotton lycra, canvas, quilting cotton, minky, swim, etc) and then your fabric would come in a month or so. Then new designs will be available for preorder the next month. Here is the company so you can see what I am talking about. https://lunadavalon.com/
That’s so cute!
Gee, I thought you meant you were a scab.
That is an adorable swim suit.
Oh, that is over the top cute, and the swimsuit too. She will be the envy of mermaids.
Super jealous of your job, but I can see why you have it. The swimsuit is fantastic. I love that its not a typical one and that you added riffles and pizzaz.
Very cute bathing suit!
When I first clicked the post I was wondering if it was going to be a swimsuit for a hedgehog or a swimsuit with a hedgehog on it.
It turned out super cute! I remember making swimsuits for myself as a teen - in the 1980s and am certain that these days I would find it far more challenging and frustrating! And not just because of the body I’d be making it for!
I love it! The design is great and that fabric is wonderful.
If someone wants a swimsuit for their hedgehog, Im there
That is super cute!
Congratulations and yahoooooo!
