DIY High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms (+ Tankini Revamp)

High-waisted bikinis are making a comeback this year! Before you head to the mall or purchase online, consider revamping an old one-piece you already have.

Simply cut your one-piece horizontally, pin and zig-zag stitch (to account for the stretch). If your suit doesn't have much stretch left you'll want to insert elastic or add darts. Do the same for the top and voilà
