I remember purchasing a Lands End swim suit when I was a teen. I think I paid AT LEAST over $40 for it.
The printed one is a Target brand. I got it for 99 cents on sell day at my thrift store.
The brown one came with bottoms and was also 99 cents. It turned out to be Banana Republic! Score!
The problem is that the neck line is a touch to low for my liking on the brown suit. So I was going to run to the thrift store and get another suit I could cut up. But realizing that on that day it would cost me a couple of bucks for a suit, at the minimum, I took a 2nd look at the floral suit.
I eyeballed it then pinned it in.
Yes, I sewed it by hand. The sewing machine I had is out of whack and I just plain don’t have room for another sewing machine in my house!
