I need a new pair of bathers. I love those 50's style designs BUT they come at quite a price. Try $180 plus. Too impatient to source and buy a pattern I started making a pair last night. A two dollar piece of gingham, some shirring elastic and about six hours later.....TA DA.....I have new togs.
This is the first and lat time you will ever see me in anything this skimpy on my blog.
Mum and hubby will probably have a fit.
I just made a long top, I'll wear my bikini bottoms under them. Easier than making a one piece.
To make them, I cut the metre of fabric into two pieces. The front piece I gathered down the sides and a short section down the centre of the top. The back piece I shirred 3/4 of the way down the back and gathered the sides the rest of the way down over the bottom. Hem the top and bottom and for a little more support hand stitch an old bra into the top and add straps.
OK. Hitting post before I change my mind.
