OK... so I have been wanting a high waisted bikini for such a long time now, but every place that I look online are either sold out or they are just way to expensive... So I decided to take a look on pinterest to get some ideas, and I found this girls blog http://lapetitefembot.blogspot.com that gave me the idea to make my own! So here it is... I had the swimming suit and the elastic already, so this project didn't cost me a thing (just my time, but it was worth it). What you need to get started: swimming suit (one piece), elastic that is ok for swimwear, sewing machine, scissors.
Try suit on and fold over to see where you want it to sit on you, when you cut give yourself extra fabric to fold over for elastic.
join elastic, do a x to make it stronger
sew elastic in, you can use a zig zag stitch, I used a twin needle it just made it much faster.
fold elastic with fabric so it is not exposed, sew around again I used a twin needle
Hope this inspires some summer projects!!
