Alison Pinup Bikini

Added Jul 13, 2011

by kittydarling

Eau Claire, Wisc...






I used the Alison pattern and altered it to make a bikini for a pinup photo shoot I did. I increased the length then created a back piece for the upper cup part. I didn’t get time to tack down a few adjusted hems before the shoot, but you can’t tell unless you look real close.

Material Notes

about a yard of swimsuit materials, and some hammer in snaps for the sailor dots.
