This is a bikini inspired by bathing suits of the 1950s. I used a leftover remnant of a cherry print jersey knit. I used a double layer of the fabric, which holds up very well. I engineered the bottom to hold up on it's own without using elastic. I accomplished that my using darts to give it a tailored fit that hugs my hips. The knit fabric holds up surprisingly well on its own.
This was my first ever attempt at making a bathing suit, but I thought why the heck not?
I may have to post a tutorial. But I mean, summer is basically over...I'm ready for coats!
