I’ve had a very looong hiatus from WordPress/blogging but never fear as I have been sewing. Its just fitting it into work and finding the energy to do anything creative, I think I’ve got my sewing mojo back.
I’m really pleased with my latest make as its my first swimsuit, I’m more pleased as its a refashion and I found it on Pinterest! So this is a Pinterest win… bonus!
I’ve wanted to make a bikini or swimsuit for some time now, I’m going on holiday soon so that’s a good excuse! I’ve a few pairs of knickers to practice different styles which have turned out well. It turns out that making them is good for using scraps (I’m planning on using some old t shirts for bikinis, see how that turns out).
I came across the above video on how to refashion a swimsuit from leggings, I was intrigued and thought “it can’t be too hard” it wasn’t! Some of the work is done for you.
Here’s how my version turned out:
It fits well and it looks classic/timeless… I’m not bragging just surprised it was so easy and looks great. I’m trying out a few bikini styles to see what works on me but I will be buying a few too as I’ve been telling myself I don’t have to make everything.
I think I’m on a roll so there will be more from me, happy crafting!
