Silver Pleasure Bikini
It is so hot! I'm talking about the weather! What were you thinking?? I know, I have a thing for bikinis, they are just so much fun to make. This one is made with silver mylar fabric. Like I said before, it is a difficult fabric to sew so most of this was hand-stitched. The top is made to slip up the body into place and then tie the neck string. The bottoms have a button closure that I accidently discovered making another bikini and really liked the results. I think it works for this one too. The button is a crystal rhinestone that adds a sparkle. To top the suit off I made a matching pair of sandals, that fit the flat-footed dolls.
