Description

This was my first attempt at making a suit with stripes like this, so the front is not lined up as well as it could be. Obviously I was inspired by the 1940’s Barbies but I wanted to make a bikini instead of a one piece. I love this look and it was great experience for working with thick stripes.

    Even though the stripes don’t match, this is really good. Great cut, bikini without being too revealing.

    i agree with what you said, if the stripes lined up at the front it would have been better but i have added it to my favorites because the back is amazingly done :)
