Yellow Polka Dot Bikini – Stitch and Flip
Today I started the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. I used the Denise Swimsuit (view A – tank style) and cut the bottom off the tank suit for the bikini bottoms. The bottom of that suit is quite flattering and I thought it would lend itself well to a bikini bottom. I plan to use the Stitch and Flip method construction. What’s that, you ask?
Stack up the main fabric with right sides together, and the lining with right sides together. Then stack the two main fabrics on top of the lining layers. Pin all the layers together.
You are done. Flip the back lining over the seams so that the lining is correctly positioned against the main fabric. Here are the seams from the inside. Everything is nice and neat.
The yellow polka dot bikini bottoms are ready to finish with the leg and hip elastic!
