Here are most of the illustrations for my Tommy Bahama Project 1960’s inspired swimsuits and coverups for yachting on the Italian Riviera…using vintage wallpaper prints in colors taken from Italian pottery… some of my illustrations are in the gallery (approx. 6) so I’ll post the pics as soon as I get them back. Enjoy!!Photobucket PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

here are the final model fitting photos of the garments I made following sketch selection 🙂 Happy Happy! p.s. The illustrations of these are in the post above so that you can compare them against my drawings… 😉tb1here’s the back…the straps on the top were not tacked down at this point…hence the fitting…needed to see where they should be tightened, etc. Also the belt at center back is now tacked down so that it doesn’t ride up. tb2tb3Rochelle rocked my suit!! Looked so amazing on her! tb4tb5coverup dress before we let the hem out… tb6tb7tb8after we let the hem out…MUCH BETTER!!! Lori was working it!! tb9
