The bikini I sewed last summer.
I took part in a designing contest and my friend Heta took photos of some of my creations. We got a great opportunity to photograph in a beautiful mansion, which was decorated with baroque furniture, curtains and details. I absolutely fell in love with that place! There was also a pool and a big sauna downstairs.

Material Notes

swimsuit fabric, lace





Thanks awfully much to Heta for taking the pictures!

    this picture’s fantastic! i like that you didn’t choose to photograph in the regular parts of some beautiful house- you could get a thousand photos like that. the colours in this are amazing! did you make the cover up as well?
