    Very nice! I tried to find details on your site, but it’s not on your DIY tutorial section. Can you link to where you talk about this suit? I’d like to see your pattern modifications for the bikini top as it looks quite different to the pattern! thanks!!

      hey! the diy post is currently not on my blog. i was actually looking to gauge interest on this to see if people wanted it! the reason being is that i only used the panties part of the pattern, and made no modifications to it. but, hopefully soon I can make a different post on it…maybe I’ll go to the beach and shoot some different photos of it! i will keep you posted :)
