How To Make A Bikni Out Of Your T Shirt

You’ve got the body, you’ve got the perfect place to wear your bikini, but you are bored of your old ones and do not want to invest in a new bikini. If this is your problem, you just need a t shirt, preferably an old one, a pair of scissors, a sewing machine or even a needle and some threads to make the sexiest bikini. You also need elastic to give your bikini the perfect fit. Now, these are things easily available and definitely cheap to make your self-designed and certainly innovative bikini. The following is your step-by-step guide to learn how to sew your new bikini from an old t shirt.

How to make a bikni out of a t shirt

Your First Step:

Take an old t- shirt. Make sure your t shirt is of a little thick material so that it does not go all transparent once you take the dip in the water. First and foremost, cut the hems off your t shirt from all sides. Unless you do this, your bikini will not be perfect. After you have done that, cut a strip of your t shirt from any one side and keep it separate. This band of cloth will be the straps of your bikini. However, if you want to add colour or funk to your bikini, you can add a contrasting shade of colour or a different print to your bikini straps. You can also buy the nicely-patterned bikini threads that you get to make your bikini more interesting and unique. So, keep your t shirt strap if you want the same pattern or debunk it and go for something different and new. When you stitch the bikini straps, keep space in between so that your elastic can smoothly pass through. You can attach a safety pin to your elastic to make the pass easy. Do the same for your bottoms also. This is the step common to your upper body bikini and your lower body bikini.

How To Make the Bikni Bra:

This step is easy. Take any of the bras that perfectly fit you. Choose if you want your bikini to cover your entire cup or should it be half covered. Accordingly choose your bra. Now keep your cup over your t- shirt and cut it in a triangular shape. There are many shapes that marketed bikini bras have, but since you are going to sew it yourself, this is the easiest one. When you stitch the seams, include both the layers of the t shirt. This will add a thickness to your t shirt material necessary for a bikini bra. Stitch the straps you have already prepared to your bikini cups. Make it halter if you want or stitch the straps for a tie up. Play with your own ideas for the straps.


How To Make the Bikni Bottom

For the bottom too, you follow the same steps as for your bra. Cut it in accordance to your size by placing an old bikini bottom on your t shirt. Here too, stitch both the layers. Either attach the elastic inserted straps to the main design of your bikini bottom or keep the option of tying a string in one end by placing your elastic through the entire upper stretch of your bottom. Tying can be a little unsafe though since it can unknot itself more easily and with a little force from the water.  Thus, you are ready with your own bikini, made in preference of your colour, pattern and design.
