It’s here! The DIY post of the Summer! In collaboration with Marta from the beautiful blog 2nd Funniest Thing, we have made a DIY video tutorial of two summer looks you can make with pieces you already have at home without touching the sewing machine! You’ll see it’s very easy and quick to customize or transform an old swimsuit or make a coverup dress from a T-shirt from your boyfriend, friend, brother… We’re really excited to share this video with you DIY’ers! We hope you like it and you will be encouraged to make your DIY total summer look!

Swimsuit process:

1. Cut the bathing suits back strips and put the rings and hand sew them. (I’ve sewn 4 rings, two on the shoulders and two on the back.)

Done! You have a bathing suit with neon coral tulle strips much more vibrant and colorful. You can tie a knot on the back and let the leftover free or you can do a bow for a pin-up look depending on your swimsuit color and print.

Process for the coverup dress:

1. Cut and angle from one side of the shoulder attached to the neck line a slightly curved line down to the armhole of the opposite arm.

3. Flip the dress so the armhole hole is the front center and you already have a halter dress.

4. To decorate the hem of her dress, cut small holes at a distance of 2-3cm.

5. Tie double tulle strips into each hole.
