suck it anthropologie!

like i'm sure most of you have done (because i keep seeing it mentioned on blogs) i too recently fell in love with this swim suit from anthropologie... but realistically, most of us aren't gonna shell out that much money for a one piece swimsuit. i mean, come on guys. thats just silly. 
so in an effort to feel better in a swimsuit with my newly grown big ass, i took a little trip down to hancock fabrics (which is still weird, i almost never use new fabric) bought a yard of their swim wear fabric and a bundle of black elastic and went to work! i drafted and sewed this up today in about an hour-- CHECK IT!

in your face anthro! i'll be spending my $143.64 elsewhere, thank you.


  1. WOW!! IT looks the same!! you did an excelent job! the best thing about doint it your self is you do it EXACT your size, not like in the others it can fit in the hips but not the breast or so on.
    Love it!

  2. That's cute! You should totally start selling this since Urban Outfitters (which also owns anthropologie) has no qualms about knocking off Etsy sellers' original designs and making money. Way to stick it to the man!

  3. You drafed that? Holy crap, you are talented. You should sell those on Etsy!

  4. Oh wow, I can't believe you just drafted and sewed that up in an hour. It's amazing! Amy's right, you could sell those on Etsy!

  5. Amazing!!! I was just looking at that bathing suit a few days ago online. Its so freaking cute!
