Description

I love Hawaiian print fabrics for bathing suits, it’s just a classic. This little bikini has stretch mesh ruffles on the top and features the high waisted bottom that I love so much. Turn the waist up or down, your choice. Pull on the sheer mesh circle skirt for extra coverage.
The bottoms are self drafted, and the top is a modified string bikini top pattern. McCalls.

    Oh, I love those high waisted bikini bottoms. I’m still not sure of wearing them myself though, always have the feeling I look bigger in them. On you they look great!

    Great ruffles! They add so much to the simple bikini pattern, I love how they drape down the front.
