This bikini is made from a lycra spandex. I made high waiste bottoms and a twist top with a strap that can be tied in a bow or around the neck. The fabric on the chiffon scarf and bikini was designed by myself and it called purple blossom. The scarf can be used as a scarf or a sarong.

Material Notes

Spandex lycra and chiffon

    Thank you everyone it’s nice to know people like what your making. Especially as there have been quite a few all nighters making them :-).

    Great fabric and look, very retro and ‘in’ in a big way. Love it

    I like this & would wear it to the beach. The shops in town sell vintage suits for a pretty penny. This is very cool.

    Thank you. My friend Hannah and I have a deal with a local shop who are selling our bikinis. We worked really hard on them. We designed the fabric and the pattern and made them all. It took ages to make stock for a shop. :-) x
