Silver Spring, M...
I was so excited to see a bikini pattern on the site! Here is my version. I had never sewn spandex before, but it was ok with the special needle I got. I used Jessica for the top – even though I used one size larger than my Burda top size, when I tried it on I still found that the triangles are a little skimpy – I might try to size it up another step next time. Instead of making the Jessica string bottoms, I used the Cheeky Panties pattern for the bottoms (resized to Burda size 42), and it turned out great! (now I just have to muster the courage to wear them in the summer, as they are quite cheeky on my ample bum!) :)
