Belgrade, Serbia






This is my first swimsuit, I had this picture taken before I jumped into the water for the first time, so I was a bit curious how it will look like when I go out, luckily it was all right, now I d modify a little bit, but I ll save my ideas for the next project

Material Notes

cotton with lycra, very comfortable




Garment Type

    Nice bikini! I’m going to make one for myself too, yesterday I bought lycra lining to give my fabric (jersey) more body, hope it turns out as good as yours!

      Luckily you don t have to use fabric that is made for swimsuit, I couldn t find the one I liked either, so I used this, I think it s important to to be firm enough and stretch, this piece of fabric cost one euro. I also have one stretch tight blouse with animal patern I was thinking to reconstruct into swimwear:)
