Well good Lord, I gone made myself a bikini!

Yep, I finally made a bikini. I designed, sewed, and slaved over it 100% by myself. I have been wanting to make my own bikinis for yeeeeears, I'm so glad I finally actually did it. My inspiration has always been the old suits that Bettie Page used to make for herself. They had so much character and personality, and they looked super flattering on. When making mine I didn't use a pattern or anything, I just went for it, eying measurements, etc. I'm really surprised it actually turned out as well as it did- let alone wearable! :-D

Here's the finished product on me, and of course my camera battery had to die just before I could take a back view pic. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.
