Just follow our easy sewing directions in this DIY tutorial.
Frightfully warm!!! that is.....
Time to get out our swimsuits, or, better yet, make a new one!
I was able to score a cute bikini for my daughter on clearance last September
at a very reasonable price.
This spring this bikini turned into a tankini to be used this summer season.
She (and I), prefer it when her belly is covered up,
so we turned this super cute bikini into a fun and convenient tankini.
This is super easy to do: I have done it time and time again,
in fact I have discussed it before in this post.
so a new tankini was essential.
Included is the sewing tutorial with easy step-by-step instructions
on how to turn a bikini into a tankini.
- Contrasting or Coordinating Lycra (Swimsuit-Style) Fabric
- Basic Sewing Supplies
I assure you: it did not look wrinkly once she jumped into the pool.... hahaha..!!)
- Use a stretch-stitch on your machine (or, if your machine does not have one: a slight zig-zag)
- Width: measure the circumference of the bikini-top. Divide by two: add one inch
- Length: measure your daughter or her favorite tankini. Add 1 1/2 inches
