McCall's 5400 Bikini
When I initially wrote this post up today, I included an entire paragraph justifying my decision to wear a bikini as an over 40 year old but you know what, the older I get, the less I feel the need to justify myself and actually really do not care. I wish I had been that way as a 20 year old!
As much as I love my Sophie bikini, my McCall's 5400, I think is my favourite and given it is a little tired it was time to replace it. I had enough fabric left over from last years tankini to make it happen.
I had ample supplies in my stash which meant the only thing I had to buy was the clasp. I even managed to harvest the cups from a new but ill fitting bra.
My new suit fits, as predicted, as well as its predessesor and has had a lot of use over what has been a very hot summer. As an extra bonus I now have mix and match pieces that will work with last summers tankini.
