Hedgehog Swimsuit


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.

@Dfabbric that’s awesome, the fabric is fab, I’m jealous if you routinely get to play with new fabric designs!

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/

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. :laughing:

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! :rofl:
