A Custom Bikini for a Cool yoga-loving Chica

Recently Katy came to me looking for a handmade swimsuit. She had some ideas in mind - small and cheeky but supportive enough to get bendy while doing yoga. She pinned some photos of suits she liked on Pinterest and we talked about colors. Many of the suits she liked were fixed triangles and had black straps or edging. We found some really cool prints from FunkiFabrics, a UK supplier, and I kept my final design pretty much secret until she received her suit. And her praise was the greatest reward!

Here is the result and her verdict on this pretty number!


The top and bottom on both sides feature pieced prints, and the bottoms feature an asymmetrical front. The ties are a little thicker, made of the softest black fabric, and super comfy. The back ties on the top offer numerous tying options, as Katy mentioned she was interested in unique cutouts and straps. These are quite cheeky but feature elastic throughout which keeps them firmly in place without pinching.

In Katy's words "Oh my goodness, Rebecca!!! You have certainly outdone yourself! I just got the gorgeous bikini in the mail last night!! And it far exceeded any idea that I had for the suit! You are outstanding!!" 

Making me blush :)
