I recently got a serger and finally worked up the guts to un-box the beast. After opening the box and re-threading the machine myself, I became much less intimidated! I spent most of the day researching bathing suit sewing patterns which led me to the discovery of Ohhh Lulu Lingerie and Apparel. Ohh Lulu not only specializes in lingerie that you can purchase, creator Sarah Norwood has made some of her patterns available for purchase! The awesome part is that some of these patterns are capable of being used as bathing suit patterns. Be sure to check her etsy out and I'll be sure to share once I use one of the patterns.
