This self-lined bandeau bikini is super simple to make. It's only made of 4 rectangles and doesn't use very much fabric. I was able to make it with 1/4 meter each color. This bandeau could easily cost less than $10, or maybe even free if you have some scrap fabric laying around!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

  • bathing suit material or jersey
  • tape measure
  • scissors
  • pins
  • matching thread
  • sewing machine
<p>wow! Nice work</p><p>looks amazing!!!!!!</p>
<p>Worked out very well, thanks! Ended up sewing the back together instead of having a tie.</p>
<p>This is seriously pretty! </p>
<p>thank u so much ^^</p>
<p>Cool design wish i could make that but not that good with fabric</p>
<p>Cool design. <br><br>One possible change, shorten the ties in the back. It looks a bit large for your bodysize, unless perhaps your goal is to stand out a bit with the unique style. Also, if swimming it may be a bit of a drag despite being swim suit material. If playing Volleyball the longer ties may get in the way... </p>
<p>That's a good point. I liked the look of the over-sized bow, but the ties could always be shortened later. </p>
<p>If the longer ties are more &quot;you&quot; or &quot;your style&quot;, then let them be. I was mostly being a dude and thinking of functiom over form :-p<br><br>I do like thay the ties arw not like a ribbon, bowtie, or shoelace... you're a person after all, not some Christmas/Birthday gift. </p>
<p>Very creative and simple.</p>
<p>So simple and so well done! I can't wait to make some of these!</p>
<p>Thank you! :)</p>
I love the colors
<p>That is fantastic. Well-documented, reproducible, inexpensive, and cute. Not necessarily in that order. </p>
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
<p>Cute &amp; I like the colors</p>
<p>Thanks :)</p>
<p>So cute!</p>
<p>It helps to have the perfect model show off the creation. You obviously fit that requirement nicely! ;p)</p>
