Modesty Makeover

Upon realizing that my current swimsuit was practically thread-bare in the back (I'm not sure when exactly I bought it, but I do know it's older than my first-born), I decided it was time for a new one. I'm not exactly flush with cash at the moment, so I dug out another suit that I had stashed away. I like it a lot, mostly because I found it at Goodwill for $1 last year (unused with the tags still on!). However, I had always avoided wearing it because I felt the bust dipped a little too low: So, I laid out the old suit:

Snipped off the inside layer:

And sewed it in! Good thing I have an affinity for blue suits. I feel much more comfortable in it. Here's hoping my stitches hold in until I have the funds for a new one! (Maybe I should go browse Goodwill again)
