Sun Bathing – DIY High Waisted Peplum Bathing Suit

It’s almost about that time again when all you can think about is chilling in a pool. Especially for me, living in this beautiful desert, I know I will be in the pool in no time. That’s why I’ve already started thinking bathing suits. I found this fabric at a local fabric store and snatched up these patterns from Joanns. I used the Burda pattern for the bikini top and the Butterick pattern for the bottom. With a few alterations I was able to create this cute little high waisted peplum two piece.

Alterations to top: Instead of going with string straps, I made the neck and bottom straps about 1 inch thicker for more support

Added another layer and padding to the bra top

Also added elastic to the bottom strap for additional support

Alterations to bottoms: Added a peplum skirt and a separate waist belt
