A list of all the best sewing tips, tricks, and techniques from around the web all in one spot. I had some pinned, some bookmarked, others referenced on my other posts, and some just in my head.
High-Waist Bikini How to Sew a Vintage Style Before you begin, I just wanted to share some important information. I created this pattern for the high-waist vintage bikini bottom myself. I initially took apart a pair of underwear which fit me really well (boy-cut style). I used that as a rough guide and through trial and error and adjustments, came up with the final pattern (there are a few variations of it too). If you like, you can do something similar - try to make your pattern based on a pair of underwear which you know fits you just how you like it. Otherwise, feel free to use my pattern and adjust it to fit your body and measurements.

Inspired by my grandmother's dropped-waist dresses from the early '20s, I soon started making my own dress patterns from paper bags.
