Step 1: You Will Need.
1. Fabric: Lycra.
3. Sewing Machine
I'm sure you're wondering: "That will not fit my bust" or "How can I make the top for my size?"
Well... Everything has a solution :)
First of all you can add more fabric to give a lot more support, straps would help too.
Step 2: First Step
Let's make the Top.
Picture #1: Measure the length of the front of the bust and cut. This will be the front of the bikini.
Picture #2 and Picture #3: See the line on the Picture? Sew that part.
Picture #4: For this part, you can use a chalk to draw the lines you see on the picture. The shape is almost like a perfect triangle. You need two pieces of triangle.
Picture #5 and Picture #6: See how put the pieces and unite with the other ruffle fabric, pin it, then sew it together.
Picture #7: Tight on the middle with a strap of fabric.
Picture #8: Will look like this :)
Step 3: Second Step
For the bottom.
Picture #9: With the help of a underwear or a old bikini that fits you well, mark on the fabric the pattern.
Picture #10 and Picture #11: Will look like you see on the picture, then cut the fabric.
Picture #12 and Picture #13: Now do the hem, on the edges and sew.
Picture #14: And that's it! You have now your own bikini! :)
