swimwear

 some time ago i made a mini swimwear collection,
and then went to spend a month on excavations
and totally forgot about it
(once you're in a hole, hanging out with skeletons,
fashion kind of slips your mind)
..
so.. here is the collection, modelled by my two lovely friends..
i used modified pattern from burda magazine from the '70s
(don't remember the exact issue
but will look it up if anyone cares to know)

    3. yup, it's a great pattern, i've made it some many times, and it looks good on so many different body shapes.. don't think you'll be able to find it online though.. i found my copy of the magazine at the flea market, and that's the only one i evre saw in my life.. sorry, i know that's not really helpful

  6. Agree with all of the above! I never wear one-piece, but I would change my mind with this one. Love it! (Next time you need a model, give me a shout!)

    1. yeah, it's almost like a two piece, that's what i like about it (and still looks nice, not like some of those trashy monokinis i've been seeing).. would love to have you as one of my models :)
