Reversible "Summer of Love" print bikini - Bikini reversível estampado "Verão do Amor"

EN Summary: As a quick side project I made myself this cute bikini (it takes no elastics and it's totally reversible). Keep reading the complete article if you're interested in knowing how it is done!

PT Sumário: Fiz este bikini muito giro e rápido de confecionar entre projetos de costura mais complicados. É completamente reversível e não leva elásticos. Continuem a ler o artigo completo se estiverem interessados em saber como se faz!



EN: From the wikipedia: "The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young people sporting hippie fashions of dress and behavior, converged in San Francisco's neighborhood Haight-Ashbury. Although hippies also gathered in many other places in the U.S., Canada and Europe, San Francisco was at that time the most publicized location for hippie fashions."

PT: Da Wikipédia em Português: "O Verão do Amor (em inglês: Summer of Love) foi um fenômeno social com manifestações em várias partes do mundo em meados de 1967 durante o verão do hemisfério norte. A passeata pela paz realizada no dia 15 de abril (na primavera) de 1967 em Nova York é considerada um marco do início desse fenômeno social. Essa manifestação reuniu cerca de 300 mil participantes, sendo o maior ato político realizado nos Estados Unidos até então."

EN: This fabulous "Summer of Love" inspired print swimwear Lycra was purchased from BWear.se (I think it is sold out now) and I used it to make Hugo Quili's Susy bikini (you can purchase the pdf pattern here):

PT: Esta lycra espantosa com estampado inspirado no "Verão do Amor" foi comprada em BWear.se (acho que está esgotada agora) e usei-a juntamente com lycra preta para fazer o bikini Susy de Hugo Quili (podem comprar o molde em pdf aqui):

EN: In spite of loving the style of the bikini, the top part didn't work for me because it hasn't enough support for my C cup breasts; I still have some Summer of Love lycra left and will make a triangle top like I did for my red bikini (here); it's either that or trying to add a black elastic band to it. The panties worked very well and the lycra's compression is enough to keep them in place. Hugo Quili has published video tutorials on YouTube for this model and I'm linking them up for future reference. The "burrito" technique used to make a fully reversible bikini bottom is worth learning and you can see how it's done even if you don't understand Spanish:

PT: Apesar de gostar muito do estilo do bikini, a parte de cima não resultou muito bem para mim, pois não dá suporte suficiente às minhas copas C; ainda tenho algum tecido Summer of Love e tenciono fazer um top em triângulo como o do meu bikini vermelho (aqui), que resultou muito bem. Será isso ou então tentar aplicar aplicar um elástico de cós à base do top, vamos ver. A parte de baixo resultou muito bem e a compressão da lycra é perfeitamente suficiente para manter o bikini no lugar. O Hugo QUili publicou os passo-a-passo no YouTube e a técnica do "burrito" para fazer a parte de baixo vale a pena ser aprendida:

EN: The top is also very easy to make:

Wonderful set, too bad the top doesn't give enough support. I'm looking forward to seeing what top you make as an alternative. I really love seeing all the lingerie and swimwear you make, thank you!
I also want to say thanks for introducing me to Hugo Quili patterns and videos! I don't think I commented before, but I looked them up when you first mentioned him and they're very helpful. I bought a few panty patterns and have made the Victoria 1052 with much success after some tweaking. I was just wondering about seam allowances: do you know if they are included with his patterns?

@Hilde: Thank you! I'm very happy to know that the work I put up on this blog (as a hobbyist) is appreciated, it means the world to me! Regarding your question, all Hugo Quili patterns include 5mm seam allowances. Some patterns especially designed for fold-over elastic don't include seam allowances on the edges that are to be finished with fold over elastic.
Adoro! Pena que a parte te cima não assente bem, é muito gira!

What a fun print you have chosen for this bikini set. I am glad you have enough to make another of the top portion. I look forward to seeing it!

It's a great bikini. I wanted to thank you too for the link to Hugo Quili. I've been watching his videos and applying some techniques. They are really excellent and the finished product is excellent. You can really tell he's a professional.
