Tropical Pin up Bikini : DIY!



I am at my Parents in French Guiana, for a few weeks of holidays. I’m enjoying sea, sun and tropical wildife. I finally have time to show you some of the DIY I had in my mind for a while! Here is a “Tropical Pin Up Bikini”, made of a beautiful local fabric we call “Madras”. I was inspired by a swimsuit from the talented DIY French blogger Makemylemonade, and I slightly adapted the top shape. You can find the tutorial and the pattern below, and print it in A4 letter size.

Don’t hesitate if you have any question, this is the first time I share a sewing pattern, so please ask if you have any doubt on something. I also recommend to use a dark fabric, to make sure transparency issues won’t ruin your efforts :)

I hope you are enjoying your summer, and if you are not on holidays, I wish this DIY will make you feel as if you were! I’m going back to my hamac & coconut tree, I’ll see you soon for a second tropical DIY ;)
