I made myself a Sukumizu (Japanese school swimsuit)! I altered a vintage swimsuit pattern to fit my needs, and it turned out pretty darn cute! I made it an about an hour, I want to make another sturider one with a lining throughout, but this one is just too cute.
Almost every anime has a scene featuring sukumizu. From Azumanga to Evangelion these suits are found throughout anime and manga.
Made from navy blue swimsuit knit material and that weird nude color lining you find in swimsuits. That stuff is way too expensive, but you don't need that much to make a swimsuit.
Thinking about using it for a Rei Ayanami costume, maybe again for Asuka, and some Kujibiki Unbalancce characterts. So many uses!
