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.All you need is an old suit or two, your machine (or you can hand stitch) and half an hour.

Step 1: Step 1: Cut Your One-piece

Simply cut your one-piece horizontally, pin and zig-zag stitch (to account for the stretch).

Step 2: Step 2: Add Elastic If Neccessary

If your suit doesn't have much stretch left you'll want to insert elastic or add darts.

Step 3: Step 3: Repeat Steps for the Top

Do the same for the top and voilà!

My Bikini days are over, but I gotta hit you with a favorite, that is one compelling selfie you took there. Absolutely perfect composition, pose, coyness- should be a cover shot for Vogue.
