Ok – I can now say in 2014, I successfully made a swimsuit! These bikinis were so quick and fun to make that I think that I’ll swear off buying swimsuits ever again. I made each of these for roughly $20, less than the cost of a bikini at a department store, and the fit and booty coverage is better than I would have found in a current RTW bikini. Plus, I got to pick out the fabric I wanted!
