I actually did not have the pattern because all books were sold out, so I simply copy catted this one (improvised).

My friend, however, is very good at cross stitching, who did the seagull for me.

It is one piece suit, where shorts are attached to the skirt and the top.

I swam in it, and it held up!!! I am impressed with this yarn. The suit is gorgeous: stylish and modest enough for me.
