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: http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m2447-products-705.php?page_id=103
