Bikini Bottoms… It’s Sew Easy!

Last August, I had the pleasure of heading to Cleveland to film segments for It’s Sew Easy on PBS. The first segment I filmed was for the Poolside Glamour episode in their 1600 series.

It was a lovely experience as everyone over at KS Ins, Productions was wonderful to work with. It was also nice filming with a different crew and studio to my usual one in Colorado that I go to.

They had me line up all my filming samples and step out and as I waiting I got to watch others film their segments which was so much fun to watch! As I mentioned on this bonus episode of Sew & Tell – I saw Cheryl Sleboda create cosplay pieces from foam. She later gave me a ride to the airport since both my shuttle and uber didn’t show up, and if you know me I get very anxious about airports and always like to arrive hours before my flight. Thanks Cheryl!

The pattern I used in this segment was BurdaStyle’s Bikini from the 07/2018 issue, and this pattern is a true winner. Burda rarely releases swimwear patterns, but when they do they are great!

I made my samples in a royal blue spandex fabric that I had leftover from a project I made for Sew News magazine, and anytime I make something in royal blue I remind myself how much I actually love that color. Once I was done filming I couldn’t help but have a little photo shoot in my new suit.

I paired with this fringed kimono that I had sewn years back, and I love the combination! To see all my step-by-step instructions and tutorial images check out the project info page here.

The next segment I shot airs later on this year and I’ll share as soon as it’s up!
