plus size one piece swimsuit

of-acorns-and-mithril  asked:

Hi! I was wondering, I saw your art piece of Azura in a swimsuit forever ago (I believe you posted it back in July?) And I was wondering if you knew what the name of that type of swimsuit was called? I've been wanting to make myself a swimsuit in that style for this summer because I think it would complement my body type, and haven't had any luck finding a tutorial, since I don't know what kind of swimsuit it is ^^U Thank you for your time and I hope you have a nice day!

I assume you mean this one? OvO

I designed this one myself and had to do some research to find something similar- but I found similar ones called “frill swimsuits” (like this one from “boohoo online” (

In this case, the frill is sawn around the lower waistline and falls like a skirt.
There is also this alternative which comes my picture a bit closer(source:

Where the ruffles/frill are around the outer leg hole.
I doubt you will find any actual sewing tutorials for something like this- but I think it is very possible to find a simple swimsuit or monokini tutorial, and then add the ruffles to it!
(here’s a tutorial for the ruffles which I was able to find: )

I hope this helps, and I’m rooting for you to find a way to sew one of this sort!! QvQb
