Bikini Bras

the bikini bras

The fabric was found at Tessuti in Melbourne and it's available on line right here.  From this small 60cm piece I made three BIKINI BRAS; they make a great summer bra alternative and excellent gifts.

If you have the skills the pattern for the TEENY-WEENY STRING BIKINI is available from my Etsy shop. It comes in Australian sizes 6 to 14 and is suitable for cup sizes A through C.  Oh, and If you prefer the full set there are two tie side options for your bottom half.  

You can view a tutorial showing HOW TO attach swimwear elastic right here and another showing HOW TO make the straps here.  For international customers, a size conversion chart is available right here.



Always glad to see a corsage on the runway

For winter 2015 both Dries Van Noten

and the new look Gucci showed many beautiful examples.

A corsage of sorts from Givenchy,

a bunch of corsage-brooch hybrids at Prada...



and finally the last word from Delpozo.


Tana Lawn

Hiding behind the POWDER PUFF cushion are a pair of TIE SIDE knickers. 

They're made from a fabric quality Liberty call Tana Lawn (perfect for knickers) and it's available in huge variety of girly floral prints.  This one was found at L'uccello along with the pink ribbon.
