"Brave-The-Waves Bikini 106-A Top of your form ... is what you look wearing this well-shaped bikini, gaily trimmed with jewelled braid for sparkle in the sun! Crocheted in easy stitches."
This should be the last of the beachwear for now. I think there are a few more stashed away somewhere.
(And no, I DIDN'T bring along a knitted swimsuit, although I have made this Rebecca one here in...um....Black Red Heart Acrylic...purely for the experience of making one and not having enough money for better yarn at the time. NO, I'll never show it here on the blog. It's a cute, flattering, forgiving, and very well designed pattern, actually. It's just entirely so icky that it's unwearable. Maybe someday I'll give it another try in the called for GGH Samoa?) I can't believe I just confessed all that.
