Ginger Swimsuit

I feel like I’ve been working on this swimsuit all summer and I’m so glad I’m finally done. (And a little sad I don’t have more time to wear it this season!)

I wanted a retro bikini and I found that in Ohhh Lulu’s Ginger Bodysuit. I didn’t change anything to the pattern, and while there are a few modifications I was too lazy to make, it turned out incredible and I love it.

I attempted to match the stripes and for the most part they’re great. There are a few bits where it just couldn’t happen and I needed to recut to make them match, but that wasn’t going to happen.

And of course, I couldn’t resist once I had my retro bikini, and I just had to do the victory rolls in my hair. I felt so glamorous. I’m pretty sure this is the only proper way to wear this swimsuit out in public.

Victory rolls + red lipstick + homemade swimsuit = instant elegance (at least in your head!)
