Swimsuit season is right around the corner and it’s time, ready or not, to pull out those suits. For a lot of us, each passing year makes it just a little harder to envision parading around in a swimsuit. This is where a good cover-up can really come in handy.
I was really happy with the finished product and it doesn’t require any major sewing skill. To make this sarong, you will only have to sew a straight seam. Even better, the hem does not have to be finished because the fabric will not fray.
1. Measure your waist and add 15 inches for the width of the fabric. The length can vary depending on your personal preference. Mine is 18″ long.
3. Position the cut triangle over the trimmed corner (right sides together) and pin the edges.
4. After pinning, flip the fabric over and trim off the excess fabric to even out the edges. Repeat on the other side.
5. Sew right sides together with a simple, straight seam.
6. Use a pencil eraser tip to turn the sewn corners right side out.
7. Use a needle and thread to attach the long unsewn edge to the sarong at intervals.
This was a fun project and I have two other fabric pieces waiting to coordinate with some of my other suits! Let me know if you give it a try!
