Bikini Bottom – BurdaStyle 04/2012 #120
I used somewhat more appropriate fabric for a bikini this time – a stretch jersey remnant costing 50c – but I only just had enough for this bikini set with not an inch to spare! They’re a lil’ skimpy for me, I am in fact not a bikini person and never will be I suspect, but I like how they appear almost professional looking, lol! They were sewn with tricot stitch, and I put elastic in the waist band, and also added side ties
4-way stretch jersey or polyknit with an ethnic ikat print. Ties cut from the hem of an old salmon color T-shirt.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
