Retro Cherry Swimsuit

Pattern: BurdaStyle’s Retro Bikini #132 05/2013 & Swimsuit Sloper

Modification: This swimsuit actually took a lot of modification! The top pattern was actually designed for a woven fabric, so I had to completely adapt for a stretch swimwear lycra. Then the bottoms I drafted using the swimwear sloper and an existing pair of bottoms to determine the right shape.

Fabric: I got all these swimwear fabrics from King Textiles in Toronto. Can’t get enough of the cherry print!

Notes: To see how I adapted and sew this retro bikini, check out my Swimwear Shape Up Sew-Along for the patterns and videos.
