    To everyone who are interested in making this, all you have to do is 1. Make a triangle shape (bikini top) on your bust. Make sure to add 1/2 allowance on te side and 1 inch allowance on the bottom 2. Measure the bottom bust (underneath your bust area) that’s the starting point for the length of the dress. It should look like an A line. Cut front and back. 3. Sew front and back together then attach the bikini top in front. 4. Add straps. I hope my explanation is well enough for all of you to understand. If you have some questions, feel free to ask.
