Jenelle from TrashN2Tees shares a tutorial over at We All Sew showing how to make a tankini bathing suit. She traced around an existing suit to get the pattern. She calls it a Teekini because she made it from a couple of repurposed t-shirts, but you could also use nylon/spandex yardage if you need it to stand up to repeated dips in chlorinated water. Go to We All Sew for the tutorial.
