I referred back to this image as I went along, leaving out the technical bow detail..
this image of my Narmie has inspired me too, I just love these bathers!
I love this image too!
they dont suit mannequins..so baggy!
I attatched pretty black elastic around the edges of the waist and legs
I made the stripy part of the top but attatched it to an old strap with a buckle. I just gathered the sides to fit the size of the strap
Elastic to hopefully prevent boob exposure. I also lined the top and bottoms for extra protection!!
Below are images of me wearing them. I debated showing you this, but as I will wear them at the beach theres no difference I guess. But as I am not comfy with a almost nude body on the internet, I took them of me in the mirror, just showing what needs to be seen for the bathers!
Have you made your own bathers before? I'd love you to show me! Im feeling pretty proud of my sewing skills. My Narmie would be proud, she made my bathers as a kid, lovely purple leopard print ones!!
Enjoy todays sunshine if you are in melbourne, it's leaving us already this afternoon!
