Fringe bikini tops are everywhere right now! Well guess what? You don’t have to spend a bunch of money to get one. Just take a bikini top you already have, and slap some homemade fringe on it!!
You will need a bikini top you don’t mind altering and some swimwear knit of your choosing. I got black and metallic pink. This typically runs $10-$15/yard. Luckily you’ll only need a quarter of a yard, so it won’t hurt your wallet.
Step 1: Measure the top edge of the bikini. Cut out rectangles from the swimwear knit with that measurement as the width. The length is up to you; my patron wanted super long fringe.
Step 3: Sew the swimwear knit to the bikini. I would suggest using polyester thread for this. My reasoning is that polyester will probably be more water resistant than cotton. After all, this is for swimming, right? Or at least risking yourself to inadvertent splashing while sunbathing.
Now you’re ready for the pool! Or a glamourous rodeo.
