The Bathing Suit Project

BurdaBathingsuit1Making a bathing suit is not a quickie project because you cannot fit as you go. Using the right fabric will help you to attain success!

In her Guest Column, Sandra’s Bathing Suit Project (featured on,) Sandra gives you tips on what fabric to use and what needle works best. You will even get pointers on inserting elastic and sewing the perfect seams.

Want a fun accesory to wear with that new bathing suit you’ll be making? Check out BurdaStyle’s Summer Beach Hat tutorial. It’s both practical and fashionable, and can easily transition from summer to fall!
