Flamingo Halter Suit

So, here I am sewing along with Project Run & Play again, even though I am a new mother of a brand new baby girl (will share pics soon) and over three weeks sleep deprived. I can't even manage to do a load of laundry, but when you must sew, you must sew. I've had this flamingo suit in the works now for a couple of months and when I saw the first theme for this season of PR&P was Put Me in The Zoo, this project moved to the front of the queue.

So I have a connection with someone who has a fabric sublimation printer that prints specifically on spandex/swimwear fabric. I love making swimsuits and the thought of designing my own fabric for suits is thrilling! Because I have my swimsuit pattern digitized already, I simply bought this flamingo image off of Shutterstock, and fit it onto my pattern piece on Photoshop how I wanted, then had it printed off! I also printed off the solid coral back piece to match.

Since week three's theme is to design your own fabric, I will be sharing another swimsuit design I have in the works! Hopefully...

How do you mothers of 3+ children get ANYTHING done?
