Bikini mayhem

I have super, super respect for the body builders and body fitness guys and gals I have been working with this year.

It is only my second season making these specialist little items and it is a steep learning curve compared to corsets and weddings. It is surprising how much engineering goes into these little beauties. There is a lot of work to do in refining the cut of the bikini bottoms and figuring out how to stop those little buggers from straying. Still I have much to learn about using stretch fabrics and elastics so I look forward to improving the fit and design.

Here's one I made last week, can't wait to see it on stage.


Tomorrow is the London and South East Championships for the UKBFF Federation and I wish Amanda Lau the best of luck in her category in her CNW custom made bikini.
