The limited swim suit edition continues as does the endless summer here in Florida.
Some of our friends have moved in a gorgeous apartment building right on the beach. I can just imagine that lifestyle for now, and dream that my husband would agree to move there also maybe in October. Imagine coming home from work and taking a swim in the pool downstairs, or a walk in the sand on the beach! Imagine doing this in the bikini swim suit I made for my friend!
The bikini pattern is from La Mia Boutique, issued in July 2005 (Italian pattern magazine).

The swimsuit is made out of Nylon Lycra swimwear fabric, with the paisley floral motif. I have lined it all over with smooth thin, comfortable white Lycra and finished off the edges with folded elastic tape.

Here's a closeup of the stitching:
