First one piece bathing suit

I have been looking at all these cute vintage inspired bathing suit, and always said to myself I will draft a pattern and make a few cute ones myself.
Anyway I haven’t had time to make a pattern myself, but I have found the Burda style website had a sweet pattern to download for free.
And I gave it a try, this is a small present for a friend of mine. You can’t really swim in it, but it is very good for performing :)
Hopefully I will have some photo’s of her sporting it soon too.
