Yesterday we went on a trip to Lava Hot Springs. When we were planning the trip, I reminded my husband Jon that I would need a new swim suit because mine was old and saggy.
He told me to just design one and then sew it up. But I was busy sewing other things and I didn’t really want to. So, he designed and sewed me a swim suit.
He doesn’t like fashion or clothing or anything like that. But he has a PhD in Physics, so he’s crazy good at math and engineering and spatial reasoning. He saw designing me a swim suit as a giant math problem, I’m sure.
He drafted the pattern one morning, and then sewed the suit up one Saturday. Here it is:
That’s the cheapest swim suit I’ve ever owned!
My boys had a blast at the Hot Springs.
|Kickin’ it in the kids’ pool.|
|It started raining when we were in the hot tubs. It felt sooo good.|
|My boys loved the rain too.|
I’m going to take that swim skirt pattern and make me some running skirts with it. But first, I have to finish a few other things I’ve got sewing on!
