I used the Alison pattern and altered it to make a bikini for a pinup photo shoot I did. I increased the length then created a back piece for the upper cup part. I didn’t get time to tack down a few adjusted hems before the shoot, but you can’t tell unless you look real close.
about a yard of swimsuit materials, and some hammer in snaps for the sailor dots.
