I made a bikini and got it finished in time for my field trip.
The pattern for the top is a modified bra pattern. For the skirt bottom I used a pattern for panties and attached a short circle skirt to it.

I have enough fabric left for another bikini so I'll be able to mix & match Smiley.

I've been a lurker for a few months now. My husband laughs because I stalk this site, telling him I've found my people!! I just had to tell you what an AWESOME job you've done! I love the colors and the look. Did you follow a pattern, and where can I get it?!

Thanks Smiley

I drafted my own patterns.
The pattern for the bottom was just a basic panties pattern with a circle skirt attached to it. I cut the circle skirt in one piece. There are several companies that sell patterns for panties or you could just cut up fitting panties.
I put a bra pattern pattern in several sizes on Burdastyle. If a pattern for your size is already on there, you could easily adjust it in the back to fit a bikini clasp.
