Time is marching on before we leave for our trip and I've been thinking of little else than my Wonder Woman swimming costume. I lie in bed a night and obsess about what to do with these three fabrics. My original idea was to panel my Pin-Up Bathing suit pattern into three pieces but in a fit of insanity I'm considering a bikini. Because, you know, I haven't worn a bikini in fifteen years so it's completely logical. I guess I reckon that a Wonder Woman Bathing suit would be so outlandish that it doesn't even matter if it's a bikini. No matter what guise this suit takes, it will be ridic.
I like the ruching on these bottoms, they might be more flattering than a straight brief. The top is dismissed by default as it would only look like this if I wore it backwards and my shoulder blades nestled in those tiny cups.
Speaking of which, just what is going on here?! It is so incongruous to me that these modest (and awesome) bottoms are paired with this lol-tastic top. Retro- you're doing it wrong.
Now here is an interesting proposition. My immediate thought was that I would use the gold for a bog-standard waistband, but maybe it should be an independant belt attatched to starry briefs? The top is more-or-less what I'm planning, minus the halterneck, which would pull my neck and head forward to such a degree that I weep and phone a chiropractor. I hate halternecks.
And finally, I leave you with a anxiety pic. I love the briefs. I covet the briefs. I wish to recreate the briefs. However, look at the sliver of skin between top and bottoms. I am incredibly short waisted (and top-heavy obviously), so I'm worrying that a supportive top and high waisted bottoms might leave me with approximately half an inch of flesh between the two pieces. Which would no doubt result in fantastic tan lines but would render a two-piece obsolete.
Here are things I await you telling me:
- Very modest two piece on the short waisted: is this crazy talk?
- Gold fabric: waistband or mock belt?
- Wonder Woman bathing suit in general: will I end up crying because people laugh at me?
