I’ve noticed that you can use almost any fabric you like when it comes to swimwear! Here’s my new bikini made of light knitting. I didn’t follow any pattern.

Material Notes

dark purple thin knitting, lace, buttons

    You’re so inspiring, lately I’ve been aching to create but my inspiration has been long gone. Now, it seems, it’s returning back home. Thank you.

    Too bad that my 55 year old figure does not allow me to wear this any longer … it is very classy !

    So lovely! I wish I could find a suit like this in the stores; after my recent battle with making my own I don’t think I have the guts to do it again! Wonderful job as always Maryy :)

    I love it! It’s like a nautical version of the bather I made. I love the high waisted look, and its so comfy.

    I think I speak for everybody here when I say: arghhhhhhhhh! I hate you! This is too amazing and it pretty much has it all: the vintage feel, the great colour combo, the lack of pattern and the look!

    Beautiful!!! But does it really not get too big and heavy when it’s wet? That assumption is what kept me from trying something like this. If not I might go for it : )
