Jalie 3134 raceback bathing suit with swim cap (purple and black)
by Cucicucicoo Follow

This was my first version of the Jalie 3134 Women's Racerback Swimsuit by Jalie, size W, in purple with black contrast and lining. It is a PERFECT fit and SOOO comfortable for swimming! It doesn't budge at all even with twisty swimming movements, yet isn't tight at all. Love it. I made a matching swim cap with my free pattern (which you can get here).

The one issue I had was with the elastic I chose for this first version, natural India rubber. I've heard that it's a good choice for swimwear, so maybe the one I used was bad quality, because it got brittle and broke apart all along all the edges, making it way too loose. I sewed another one exactly like this one with regular woven elastic and it's perfect.
