After being frustrated with the options for one piece swimwear ( I dont want a skimpy little bikini) I decided to make my own. I had some left over stretch poka dot fabric, and some mesh tulle with black little dots, and decided to give it ago.
I used the t-shirt pattern on burda style (the free one) and used the front and back, instead of having a skirt part I changed it to a knicker style. I added some ruffled tulle to the neck line and legs, and it worked out well.
Super sexy and fun, although one small problem, the back is alittle “cheeky” hehehe So I can always be brave and just wear it, or tuck this into a pair of jeans, skirts, or shorts.
