A swimsuit for Isabella

This swimsuit is made from the Jalie 2317 pattern, size 4. This is the first time I have made a swimsuit, so the learning curve is high. I used swimsuit elastic in the neckline and the armholes but I think it is too thick.

After sewing the elastic the first time, it rolled outwards. I ran it through the coverstitcher once more to tack it down a bit. It seemed to work, for now.

I think I will use regular elastic for the next one and lengthen the serger stitch so it won't be so thick.
