Vintage Swim-suit!

Added Feb 17, 2010

Praha, Czech Rep...






Last january I went to Budapest with my boyfriend. We choose this city thanks to its more than famous thermal baths :)
I didn’t want to show my “winter white” skin and my “not ready for bikini” belly, so I decided to sew a one piece swim-suit!
It was easier than I used to think and for the first time I had no problem finding the perfect fit for my “curves”.
I think I’ll add some gold beads in the front, but I’m not sure…

Material Notes

I bought this fabric last summer with the intention to make a bikini, than I abbandoned the idea and winter has come… Luky me! In winter there are no cute fabrics for swim-suits but I already had it in my closet :) I had to buy only the lace to decosate it.

    I saw the pic and straight away thought ‘hey, she is at Széchenyi!!’ Did you like Budapest? I like the lace.

      Yes! I was at Széchenyi! I really loved Budapest, beautifull and nice to walk around. I found it really more european and cosmopolitan than lots of italian cities (comprise mine) :)

      I drafted the pattern by myself, from my basic bodice pattern and my old swim-suit :)
