A huge hit this bathing suit season has been the fringed bikini tops. It stays true to the traditional bikini silhouette with an added flirty flare and you can make it at home!
– Bikini top
– Fringe (1/2 – 1 yard)**
– Needle/thread or sewing machine
** can be purchased at any fabric store
Step 1: Fold one end of the fringe and align to the top corner of one of the bikini breasts, fasten with a pin.
Step 2: Pin the fringe along the edge until you reach the very end (cut and fold the end before pinning).
Step 3: Sew it up! I realized the edges were thick and a bit hard to get through with a sewing machine especially when you reach the end. It helped to pull out the bottom string (used to tie around our back) so the machine can get closer to the edge of the fringe.
Step 4: (Not necessary if you didn’t take the bikini off the string) Connect the end of the string to a safety pin and push it through the bottom of the bikini seam. Remove the safety pin and tie a knot at the end of the string.
Repeat steps for the other side of the bikini. Happy sun bathing!
