Pin-up Girls is proud to present this collection of bikinis for fun and sun with a choice of 3 unique tops and bottoms. All tops have an interior underwired bra made from swim cup foam and a unique criss-cross back that allows the bikini top to fit multiple sizes. The straps have elastic sewn directly to the inside seam so it will never roll or twist. All bottoms have a waist high cut with a doubled fabric waistband and a centre back seam for shapely results. The bikini bra tops all use our SHORT wires, and the pattern fits a variety of bra cup sizes. The bottoms fit hip sizes 35-47".
VIOLET- vertical seamed bra top and bottoms with button trim at the waist
REBECCA - uses a tie to gather the front of the top, bottoms have a ruched front panel
MARSHA - with a twisted knot effect and bottoms with mini twists at the side front
.5 m (½ yd) of spandex blend swimsuit fabric with stretch in both the lengthwise and the crosswise direction
.5 metres (½ yd) of 100% nylon swimsuit lining

I made the Violet version and the first time I wore it all my friends said "cute suit!!!"
The top is fantastic, gives cleavage without looking sloppy. The straps make it easy to fine-tune the band fit. The bottoms are flattering and cover my butt nicely. The whole effect is 1940s Retro. Now all my friends want me to make them one.

I really like the swimsuit that I made with this pattern. It's flattering and well-fitting. My top was outside the range of sizes available, but when I sent an email asking about adapting it to my size, Beverly quickly responded with instructions on how to grade up. I followed them, and am happy with the fit.
The illustrations show Rebecca with slightly wider straps than the other two styles. I like the wider strap. The instructions, however, are only for the skinny straps in the Violet and Marsha suits. I wrote to Beverly on her blog about this, and she agreed with my plan for making wider straps.
I found the strap to be too long. This is likely partially because of my adaptation to the pattern, and may also be due to the amount of stretch in the fabric I used.
I will probably make this suit again and have already recommended it to someone else.
