I made this from a 70s Vogue pattern for a 2piece swimsuit connected with a ring at the stomach. This is the first swimsuit I have ever made, but I am pretty happy with my result. It is made of gold snakeskin lycra with a nude lining. I bought the fabric and buckle at Discount Textile Outlet in Chicago and it all cost about $10. No one at the beach will have the same swimsuit as me, that is for SURE! :)
