This book is appropriate for beginner to advanced levels of sewing ability, and is written from both a designer, and former “performance” athlete’s point of view. It will teach everything from the basics, to tricks of the trade. "Spandex Simplified : Synchro Swimwear" will prepare the reader to design and make almost any design of competitive synchro swim suit imaginable.

Given the cost of decent competition suits, this manual will more than pay for itself with the savings from just one project!

Once you learn the basics, you can move on to creating much more complicated designs!

The entire book is written completely in laymans' terms and carefully explained, step by step. Only basic sewing knowledge and talent is required.
