Or were the dots yellow and the background white or some other colour, as shown below?
I have had some spirited debates on this very subject in my swimwear classes, but alas, it has never been resolved...until now.
Last week, I took my Master Swimwear students on a field trip to Ann's fabrics on the mountain in Hamilton. Remember this picture I took of their purchases?
Well, one of those fabrics is mine. You can see it at bottom left. When I saw that yellow fabric with white dots, I just started humming that song in my head! So now I know, that bikini in the song just had to be on a yellow background with white dots!
So stay tuned...over the next few days I am going to share with you a step-by-step "pictorial tutorial" of the journey from Fabric to Fabulous.
The Itsy Bitsy
Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
It will be seen for the First Time Today!
You can hear the whole song here.
