Would love to find out how to make men's bikini swim suits! I have found a pattern, but don't know what stitches to use, and what thread to use to allow for the stretching of the suit. and if there are any tricks for getting the elastic in nice and tight like how Speedo would do it. (my son is a diver and they go through suits like crazy!)
