Vintage Swim Wear - The Rebecca Page Bondi Bikini Sewing Pattern Review



Summer Lovin' Having a Blast!  

Get your Bikini Sew Jo on with the Rebecca Page Bondi Bikini.

With several options, you'll sew up this suit in no time. 
- Fully Lined
- Totally Flattering
- Halter Neck
- Diamond Shaped cut out and Front Bow detailing
- Optional Tankini or Bikini Length Tops
- Optional Regular or High Waisted Shorts


 

 

It's a fun suit, and stays on while you play in the water!


 

I especially like the shorts on it - just enough to cover up my big hips and thighs, making me feel my best. 

The back is one piece, and ties up at the neck into a comfortable halter style top


 


The front was actually pretty simple to sew up - but be warned, it does require a lot of swim elastic!  I found a huge roll of 1/4" swim elastic on Amazon for about 80% less than I'd spend on swim elastic by the 2-3 yards in store (at $0.50 a yard!), so it will do me some time for suits and even non-swim suits. 

The fabric was a special from Fabricland (sorry - it's sold out clearance now!), and sewed up amazingly. 




From the side, it's flattering with the high waisted bottoms and normal banded bikini top - the tankini version brings the top band down to meet the shorts 

If you haven't sewn swim fabric before, this is a lovely first time sew - and very forgiving.  

Just remember to use the proper stretch stitch, and take your time.  Don't actively pull the elastic (hold it tight - but don't tug) and the suit will sit on your body properly.
