4 DIY Ways To Transform Your Boring Old Bathing Suit
Swimsuits, sadly, are kind of over-priced these days. Turn your traditional one-piece into one of these on-trend swimsuits for practically no money.
Some of the cutest bathing suit trends are easy to make yourself. Here, three talented fashion bloggers demonstrate four different ways to DIY a swimsuit.
1. Cut-Out Trikini
Step 1: Pull the bathing suit over a box or a chair to stretch it out.
Step 2: Cut as cleanly as you can along where you marked with the chalk.
Step 3: Pull and pass the lower part of the bathing suit through the key chain.
Step 4: Sew near the key chain so it won't move around.
Step 5: Do the same with the top part of the bathing suit, joining it to the bottom.
2. Woven Asymmetrical Suit
Step 1: Pull the bathing suit over a box or a chair to stretch it out. Mark with the chalk were you want to cut off one of the straps.
Step 2: Follow the mark to cut it off.
Step 3: Fold less than 1cm of the fabric in and sew with a loose stich or zig-zag stich.
Step 4: Mark a curved line with the chalk from the strap to the back.
Step 5: Make small cuts of 4-5cm along the line, leaving a space of 2cm between each cut.
Step 6: Now you can start weaving.
When you get to the end, cut the last strap and knot it to the last part of the cut piece.
Ready for a swim!
