Getting ready for summer ... vintage scarf bikini

vintage scarf bikini by karen vallerius
Another UFO was this vintage scarf bikini.  I only had to handstitch a tiny ribbon strap, goodness knows why that tiny task took me so long!  Anyway, here it is.  Apologies I am not modelling this but I doubt if the pants would even fit up to my knees!!!  The bra is based on the 1930s hankie bras and the pants are made to a 1950s bikini pattern.
