I think vintage high-waist bikinis are classy, comfy and cute! But, they cost quite a lot of money if you buy them in the store (and they're hard to find also) - and there's no guarantee they'll fit you properly. It's very simple and inexpensive to sew them yourself at home! Once you get the sizing right - you can make lots of different styles. I'll guide you through the process here! The bikini bottoms I made were from real vintage swimsuit material that I got from my grandma - obviously any swimsuit stretchy material will work!
I tried to get a variety of photos so you could really see how the fit was - I didn't do the best job in photographing myself - but I tried!
