I made the back band and the straps shorter - luckily I remembered that from last time I made them which was probably a couple of years ago now. I was in a hurry and I set to work with pink thread. I rushed in and decided I would use the lining and lycra as one piece. I also just se the machine to zig zag and set off.
I didn't think about stitch length and when I put them on to get the strap length right, it stretched the stitches and now it has this flat lock looking stitch. Quite fortuitous as I happens as I really love the look... I think it's a nice feature.
The seams are a little stiff and a little scratchy but not enough to worry me but enough that it's noted for next time I use power net... if I use ordinary lining fabric and sew it up in as one it's much softer. I do like the power net lining as it keeps things firm for aqua aerobics although I do wear a sports bra when I do it.
That's the back view with the sports bra.
I'm really happy with how they turned out. Fabric is from East Coast Fabrics for $15 per metre. I have some left and may make a little rashie too.
