This truly wonderful 1960's bikini, lovingly handmade in blue wash denim, and embroidered with yellow and red floral motifs, is the perfect set to add to your summer wardrobe.
The strapless cut of the bikini boasts a fitted wired cup design, joining the back of the bikini top with double straps, attached to elastic which then joins a loop fastening. The matching bikini briefs, in a low rise cut, are accented with yellow floral embroidery and a statement red coloured embroidered flower along the back. The briefs are elasticated along the waist and along each leg opening.
This bikini set has clearly been lovingly handmade. The denim is backed in cotton lining with bias binding edgings.
