I "freehand" crocheted this set from my own original pattern in a gorgeous purples varigated  stretchy cotton, keeps it's shape perfectly in the water Wink
I seperately crocheted the dahlia's and appliqued them by hand:

Hey Grin Yep I sure doooo...  I have a custom bikini business here in Atlanta, and I have been selling them for over 10 years (since I was 22). I am just starting my mail orders, and I am really hoping to have at least a few suits ready to go online for custom orders by the end of this month... then on to my pattern site Shocked

Wow!  You're designs are AMAZING!!  I can't wait until your patterns are up!!  I've been trying to figure out a swimsuit for myself that is sexy, but a little less revealing (I had 2 kids in 2 years and have the stretch marks to prove it).  I'm going to take some pictures of your designs with me to the gym for inspiration!   Wink  Its already swimsuit season here in FL!  I need to get crackin'.

Awww, thanks! Grin  I'm working out to, these are so yummy when I'm working on them, it's great motivation to NOT raid the "snack cabinet"  Wink

I am thinking up a design now for a flirty little skirted one-piece with a tighter weave on the tummy. If you used 2 strands together, it would give ALOT of support and hold your tummy under control (she speaketh from experience) Roll Eyes

I almost made a skirted bikini bottom... I say almost because it's in my drawer unfinished, and that's because I tried to knit the skirt and came out horrible because i'm not that great at knitting.   Roll Eyes I don't think I'll ever go back to it, i'm too busy with other bathing suits!
