I’ve always wanted a bikini like this and i finally had the guts to try make one! it’s not perfect and i dunno how well it’ll fare against the surf and sun BUT still good for lying on the beach. also super comfy to wear :) This is just a thin knit like material, i might try making one in a more durable/swimwear-like material
I just drew the pieces on fabric and cut and sewed…used my undies as pattern for the bottom and extended height to make it high waisted and attached skirt piece over that. top was just a rectangle :)
knit material, elastic lace.
