    Gift of Jane Holzer, 1993 (1993.517.40ab)

    Quite literally a "string bikini," this rust-colored crocheted creation is made almost entirely from cotton yarn. The swimsuit is held in place by elastic strings at the bustline and waist along with halter ties, while strategically placed densely crocheted areas keep the wearer's modesty in tact.
