Description

A little moment of madness ;) I decided to create this after seeing a 50s bikini, covered in Elvis’s face and Hawaiian flowers. So this is my homage to the fabulous Morrissey!!
It is made from cotton voile, so it is interlined (the interlining is cotton with fusible light interfacing applied to the bodice section only).
Photos taken with a petticoat, also made by me.
Based on 116 from 06/11 but for some reason I can’t add that link on here!

    Yes, that contrast caught my eye, too. It really does look… dare I say… “swell”? (hehe) Oh, and btw your link works just fine on this end! Thanks for sharing.
