As we will be making a garment that is close fitting and you will want to try this on to check the fit regularly, we recommended that you wear suitable clothing. Leggings and a vest are ideal so the bikini/ swimsuit can be quickly tried on over these throughout the making process.
You can buy fabric from our shop or bring your own. Please contact us for advice. As the fabric is synthetic pre-washing is not required.
