Triangles Tangas Bikini Patterns
Pin-up Girls is proud to present this collection of Triangles Tangas Bikini Patterns. The triangle tops and tanga bottoms are great for beachwear, swimwear, or posing suits for fitness competitions. All are non-wired and use a variety of construction methods for the ultimate in sewing freedom.
Included in this collection is a choice of 3 tops and 3 bottoms, suitable for beachwear or fitness competition wear (posing suits). All tops are a triangle style and all bottoms are a “cheeky” style designed to expose the derrière. The cheeks are exposed along the bottom edge, but not as much would be exposed in a thong!
Bonus – includes a lesson on how to sew the elastic invisibly inside the straps and ties – no shifting, no hassle! English only for this pattern at this time.
Malibu – a classic all-fabric triangle top, with a string to gather the bottom edge and tie-up halter straps with a back drawstring. Co-ordinating or contrast binding highlights and finishes the edges. The bottoms tie with self-made strings at the hip.
Miami – includes a band that runs under the cups, made with darted fabric over cut-and-sew foam lining. This allows for the best in comfort and sewing ease. Binding accents the edges. The bottoms include criss-cross band at the centre front.
Maui – the latest in tanga fashion, with a Brazilian scrunch along the centre back. Use our pre-formed foam cups (our MT style) for the top. These cups cover beautifully with darts, gathers, or even seamlessly, with the right fabric!
The Triangles Tangas Bikini Pattern uses the Pin-up Girls unique method of sizing for the bikini top. The tops fit a breast measuring from 6″-9.5″ (16.5-24 cm) in the cross cup. To measure the cross cup, simply measure across the fullest part of the bust, from wire line to wire line. The bottoms fit hip sizes 33-45″(84-114 cm)
