It’s that time of year again! Time to get all up in the sun and sand (don’t forget your SPF!).
Bikinis are expensive and sometimes it’s tough to find the right sizes, so this year, Faith and I made our own. It was super easy, in fact– this style is a NO SEW! That’s right!
All we did was take a string bikini bottom and opened it up onto our elasticized fabric. Using the bikini bottom as a pattern, we cut out around the shape, leaving extra fabric on the hips for ties. Next, for the bando top, we literally cut a 6″ wide strip of fabric, and cut 3 fringes on either end to tie together in front.
The whole thing took about ten minutes, and cost about $5. No stress and no fuss. Race you to the pool!
