DIY Fringe Bikini Swimsuit

Summer is here and to cool off in this hot summer heat is to take a dip in the swimming pool. The current trend are fringe swimming suit tops so I have made two types, one is a triangle top and the other is a bandeau top. The best part is I recycled everything so it was free to make!

First I started off with a pair of workout pants that I didn’t use anymore and plain black triangle top. I measured the bikini top to the pants, marked it with a white color pencil, and cut off a rectangular piece. I made sure on one side I didn’t cut off the seam. Cut the strips vertically and then pull the strips to curl the ends. With the end with the seam I folded it over to have a clean edge and using a pearl pin pinned it to the triangle top. You can use a sewing machine but I used a needle and thread. Please be carefully when using any of the supplies.

Next I created a bandeau top bikini. I had a black bandeau top and workout pants. I measured across with the pants, marked it, then cut it out. Next I folded the pants in half and drew a slightly diagonal line and cut it out, I did this because I wanted the fringe to have a curve.

Next cut the fringe pieces by cutting strips vertically. Pull the strips to curl the fabric ends. Add pearl pins to keep in place and sew with either a sewing machine or needle and thread. I love how both of my fringe bikini tops turned out! I am ready to be styling in the summer heat.
