Love high waist bikinis and they always seem to be so expensive. So I decided to try my hand at making my own. Used a pair of my underwear and an old bikini top as a resource to draft my patterns. Sewing stretchy fabric is tricky though so I need to work on a few areas but I think its not too bad for my first time.
