I've never made a bikini before, but I have this sparkly pink, stretchy fabric that I want to use to try and make a bandeau bikini out of.
I searched CO+K and Youtube, but only found clubwear bow bandeaus and T-shirt triangle bikinis.
Please help, I need an easy to follow bandeau bikini tutorial.
A bandeau is probably one of the easiest things to make: you could most likely use a cheap bandeau bra (such as from tellos) as a pattern. Measure yourself just above the bust and just below, allow for seams (about 3/4") and measure your chest across your boobs (armpit to armpit) and the same across the back. Be sure you remember to subtract the underboob number from the overboob number; this will give you the width of the bandeau so that it fits you correctly.
Hope this helps!
