Bathing Suit Refashions!

Posted on

Here are two Tankini style bathing suit tops that I thrifted that were just awkward fits.  I have a long torso so this style of top never fits me right, it rides up or sits awkwardly.  I got them each for $2.99 at Value Village.

So I cut off the bottom part just under the bust.

I stitched the remaining fabric down in a wide zigzag stitch to the bust bands on both.  Here is a close-up of one of the tops with its stitching.

Here are the final results.

 I think they turned out quite well and will have a new life with me snorkeling and lying on the beach hopefully soon in somewhere warm and sunny.  Cheers, Michele
