Totally cute cotton fabric with Pinup Girl Print, contrasting woven red cotton fabric.
Bikini top was cut using a vintage pattern, pleated bust, unlined with red rickrack trim, short sleeves with darted ''puff'' look, button front. full circle skirt with hi-waist and pointed waistband, back zipper. Bow is a pin and can be moved or taken off. This one i used a vintage Hollywood pattern from the 40s but the skirt pieces were missing so i just did a mini circle skirt and pointed waistband.
For this set i made a pattern from a vintage 50s bikini top that i have in my stash and used it to create the top, the shorts are from a 60s swim pattern, they have little darts under the bum, you cant really tell from the pictures but it makes the legs a bit less gappy in the back.
This set i drafted the top myself. The upper part of the bra is gathered on to a facing to hold the gathers in place, the contrasting under cups have little darts. The shorts are cut from the the same pattern as the red shorts mentioned above.
