Hopefully it won't be too long until I can take pictures like this at the beach, but this will have to do for now. Sara needed a suit for Easter weekend (although we didn't end up having the time to go swimming after all). She adamantly refused to wear this suit (I don't blame her) and it was a bit snug anyway.
This one is from Ottobre 3-2009-38 and has a very, very simple design: front and back pieces, one binding along the top edge, and four straps sewn on to tie at the shoulders. The pattern includes a seahorse applique, but Sara was very sure she wanted a plain, solid-color suit. I added the black for interest, and I'm glad I did.
