I'm sure you have the one big t-shirt that you never wear, well on this tutorial I give you an idea on how to convert it into a bikini cover up!

Step 1: You Will Need.

Elastic band.
Sewing machine.

Step 2: First Step

Let's start! It's very easy!

Picture #1: First you need to cut the neck line

                    Primero debes cortar el cuello de la camiseta.

Picture #2: See how I cut through unto the shoulder.

                    Fíjate como corto hasta llegar al hombro .

Step 3: Second Step

Picture #3: Measure the elastic band according to your size, not too tight.

                    Mide cuanto elástico necesitarás de acuerdo a tu medida, no muy apretado.

Picture #4: Now sew the elastic like I'm doing to secure.

                    Coser el elástico como lo hago en el video y así asegurarlo.´

Picture #5 and Picture #6: To sew the elastic choose the zig zag type.

                     Para coser el elástico, elige la forma zig zag en tu máquina de coser.

Picture #7: After you're done, will look like this.

                    Luego de coserlo, te quedará así.

Step 4: Third Step

Picture #8, Picture #9 and Picture #10: Measure your arm, cut the elastic and repeat the same step as you did for the neck.

                                                                       Mide tu brazo y corta el elástico para luego repetir el mismo paso que realizaste para el cuello.

Picture #11 and Picture #12: Will look like this! :) 

                                                      Te quedará así! :)

    Hey giannyl your video tutorials are great! Will hand sewing give you the same effect on your tutorials?

    Killer pickup line dude! You mind if I use that at the VFW tonight? There's this Vietnam Nurse vet I'd like tah...

    / Does it really ever work?

    I'm sure all you other guys tune in just to learn how to sew, I'm not afraid to admit I look to see how her creations compliment her figure which I am sure she realizes they do. For a compliment to be a pickup line you have to expect somekind of interaction which to this old man still means face to face not online. To clarify, I did not expect that acknowledging she is a woman would make her leave her husband and child or even the beautiful scenery of her homeland to fall in love with a grumpy old american.

    As a side note: Giannyls instructables have taken the mystery from sewing and pattern making for me, no longer limited to just sewing on patches, last year, I made my halloween costume. Nothing elaborate but rewarding none the less


    It gives us grumpy old people someone to live our lives through.

    You make sewing look so fun, easy, and sexy.

    You are your own designer, seamstress, host, and model. All wrapped-up in a very beautiful package!! I can only dream about woman like you.

    Keep up the great work though, despite my heart skipping a beat everytime I see you, I do learn quite-a-bit about sewing from you -- I may end up buying a sewing machine.... except I won't be making bikini's and thongs, lol. Thanks for the inspiration Giannyl.

    Ohhh this is so easy !
    My boyfriend has a lot of cool t-shirts ...
    he he he :D
    Thanks , I really love this idea.
