cove to cove swimsuit

This knit swimsuit is inspired by a swim my family takes each summer, called the “cove to cove.” As the name states, everyone swims a considerable distance from one cove to another. I, however have never attempted this swim due to the cold temperatures of the New England ocean. This garment is an attempt to connect myself to the swim, while still acknowledging the fact that I haven’t participated. The pattern on this swimsuit represents my nature of only going about waist deep into the ocean and the brightly colored swim cap mimics the matching swim caps my family wears during the swim.
