*** Please note this is a PDF digital instantly downloadable SEWING PATTERN and not a ready to wear bikini ***
This mix and match bikini is perfect summer! The pattern includes two top variations and two bottoms variations that all co-ordinate. Make all four styles in co-ordinating fabrics for the ultimate mix and match bikini or pick your favourite top and bottoms style and rock your stunning set at the beach!
The tops are drafted for a B-D cup but can easily be altered with a FBA (full bust adjustment) for larger or smaller cup sizes. There is a tutorial on how to do this on the Evie la Lùve YouTube channel, along with a whole load of other swimwear and lingerie sewing tutorials. If you are new to sewing swimwear and are looking for some guidance on the fabrics and notions needed, check out my 'Introduction To Swimwear' video.
This pattern is an advanced pattern due to the nature of fabrics, elastics and techniques required but if you are new to sewing swimwear, don't let that put you off. There are photos for each step and tutorials on the Evie la Lùve YouTube channel which super simplifies everything so don't be afraid to dive right in!
The skills required (or you will learn on the job) with this pattern are:
- Sewing with swimwear elastic
- Sewing with stretch fabrics like spandex or scuba
- Using a twin needle (optional)
We recommend you sew a test garment in similar fabrics to check size and fit before sewing in your best materials.

Check out image four for all the supplies needed for each style. Three different widths of swimwear elastic are needed if you are sewing all four styles, these are also available in our Etsy shop!

Included is a sewing glossary, a supplies check list, plan your make page and information on how to take your measurements. This pattern comes with a 46 page instruction booklet, of full colour instructions. But don't fear about printing it all out! There is a helpful contents page which makes it easy to print (if indeed you do print your instructions too) the necessary pages. The pattern is printable on US letter and A4 size paper across 11 pages. Some of the pattern pages need to be taped together in a grid, however some of the pattern pieces are small enough to fit on one page, so you won't be taping together pages for hours!
