Bikini making. it happened!!!
It’s hot hot boom “Bra making” in this worldwide sewing community and swimwear as well. I never believed it happens to me but it happens spontaneously when it should happen. and it is right.
It’s really hard to find pretty Swimwear Lycra fabric in here. I bought this Lycra fabric in Germany 3,4 years ago. I even didn’t know it is Lycra or for swimwear. I bought because of this gorgeous Golden mustard yellow, my favorite color.
I made a off shoulder top already as you can see in here. I had almost 1.5m fabric still in my stash and it turned to bikini finally. this Lycra met finally perfect partner.
I recycled totally my old bra. i took bra side wire and used as bikini bra boning. this is originally unpadded top but i wanted little bit support and coverage so i padded bikini top using my old bra soft cup.
It worked perfectly. a lot of zickzack stitches this time. no serger used.
I am impressed. sewing, pattern and myself. swimwear fabric is definitely one of “keep in my fabric stash” item now.
