Ariel Women's Swimsuits
By Laura Keith
From Stitch Summer 2013
For the home sewist who wants to spend more time in the pool and less time trying on swimsuits, both the one-piece and the bikini version will make for a delightfully figure-flattering summer.
Above the water line, the bright trim strap and underarm detail is eyecatching. Inspired by Ariel, the Shakespearean sprite who stirs up a storm, both styles are sturdy enough under water for some energetic body surfing.
