Using three Funki Fabric remnants, I decided to make an 80s throwback swimsuit using Kwik Sew 3064.
Funki Fabrics are a polyester print base and they are also:
- Ulta chlorine resistant
- Pilling resistant
- Shape retention
- Two way stretch
- UV protective
The shape retention is the key feature I love (supportive fabric) and because our Australian Summers are so harsh, the UV protection is a bonus.
Thanks again Funki Fabrics. These fabrics work really well on the swimsuit patterns I’ve had in my stash for ages.
