The inspiration for this DIY comes from this bikini top by L*Space. Adding some fringe to your bikini top is a fun way to give it a makeover.
- String bikini (here's a top and bottom for $4.80/each)
- Nylon/spandex fabric (I buy my swimwear fabric from here. They have a huge selection)
- Needle & thread (if you're working by hand) or sewing machine
- Sharp scissors
|[Using your bikini top as a guide, cut out a triangle to make the fringe. Make the bottom approximately 3 inches longer than the original. Using this new triangle as a guide, cut out another for the other side of the top]|
|[Cut small sections from the bottom up to create the fringe. Leave a ¼ inch section down the right side uncut]|
|[Sew the fringe on top of the original bikini down the right side only (where you left the fabric intact). Repeat on the other side]|
