Bikinis are for Summer

I got an invitation to attend a course about making a bikini. I have to say that for months I was silently ruminating on the idea of making my own bikini. The one from last year (and the year before) is about to break (anytime I see it I picture myself loosing the bottom in front of everybody, what a nightmare!) and the previous one is not better than a saggy bag. But the 60 euros of the course is a lot of money. Off course it’s always nice to attend those courses, not only because you usually meet great people, but it’s also¬† always desirable to support independent designers and teachers. But still, that’s a lot of money that I could use to buy more fabric and wonderful yarn for my next project.

I recently learned how to sew with knit fabrics, the pattern school has wonderful resources and half a meter of fabric costs around 5 euros. And off course there are plenty of free tutorials on internet, like this one.
