Over at my other blog - The Strawberry Milk Run - I have published a pattern and tutorials for a colour block bikini. The pattern is free. The links are at the bottom of this post.
Sewing a bikini is probably easier than you think. You don't need a fancy machine, just one that does a zig-zag stitch. You may need to change your needle to a stretch needle, but that is all. And think of the positives - once you can sew your own bikini, you will never need to go swimwear shopping again!
The hardest part will be choosing your colour combinations. Turquoise, watermelon & sunshine yellow would be very summery. If you are more of a bronzed beach goddess, you could combine different metallics together. Prefer something more classic? How about black, white & black? I have gone with peach, copper and jade.
