What I Made

I’ve been wanting a bikini for some time, but plus size bikini’s tend to be quite expensive. 


I had some cherry fabric, and I remembered this playsuit from Bettie Page.  It’s super cute.



I got a McCalls shorts pattern (below), and I altered a dress bodice pattern to make a cute bikini top. 


Then I made the shorts a little more high waisted, and I whipped those up.


Not pictured is a matching button up skirt to go over the shorts. 


Unfortunately, I got a horrible sunburn on my back!  Ouchie!


Here is the pattern for the shorts:
