looking to make some. Been wanting to make my own for a while now. For starters I pickup up a Coverstich Serger Brother 2340CV, will do the job for now, I have not really used it yet, I tried to sew a bikini bottom and it started sewing a ball as if it were stuck, I used a Maxilock brand (think that's the brand) Wolly Nylon in black. I am new to sewing.
Since that kept happening, I held off to educate myself a bit more. I am not giving up because it's not rocket science and I am determined to make my own swimwear regardless of why others says about it being a pain to work with, I've dreamt of this since I jumped into my first one piece swimsuit aka:leotard - lol
that became my fav swimsuit (yes, it was a mix of cotton - weren't as thick as you think) and wore it till it fell apart, since then I was determined to make the exact one (20 yrs ago, Im 37 now
So basically teaching myself, with youtube videos on the basics and hitting the library hard on everything spandex.
Just trying to find more sites focused on just swimwear, lots of costume blogs that utilizes Spandex/Elastane. Hoping to share more with other w/ same interest.
For those of you talking about stitches please include pics along with the nicknames so I don't get confused, if it's not too much trouble, I would really appreciate it (i'm a visual learner).
As I mentioned, I am still new and learning the lingo.
Any feedback would be sooo great,thank you for taking the time to help me.
