This first set has been sewn as a gift for a very petite friend rather than for myself. I cut the XS bikini and the bra in a 30C, consequently not much fabric was required. So I rummaged in my knit fabric scrap bin and came up with enough bits of a galaxy printed lightweight nylon/lycra swimwear knit for the main pieces. Though I purchased this fabric from The Fabric Fairy quite awhile ago, it still seems to be in stock. I underlined the front band with black duoplex for stability, used black powernet for the back band and cut the back of the panties from a bit of black satin milliskin. All the elastics, strapping, closure, powernet and rings & slides were sourced from Sew Sassy and / or Fabric Depot . I'm a tad concerned that the band may be a little long for my small friend, and will update on fit as soon as she tries it on.
This was a fun and easy sew and during the entire process I had future versions skittering through my brain --- there will definitely be many future versions.
