Have you ventured into making or designing swimwear yet? Mixing and matching tops to bottoms seems to be a method of choice for those who wish to personalize their swimming costume. We chose a string bikini top, made a slight variation on it, and paired it with a free bikini brief pattern. With these two pattern downloads and tutorials you may find that constructing swimwear is not as challenging as you may think! Follow this link for more swimwear patterns and DIY swimwear tips.
*Note: The bottoms pattern for this bikini has been updated.
1/2 yard of lightweight knit, jersey, swimwear fabric, spandex, lycra.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
