How to Make a One Piece Into a Tankini

"Learn how to make a one piece into a tankini. This refashion project is great for a one piece swimsuit that is too short or long in the torso. I have a really long torso and find it really hard to get a one piece swimsuit that fits the way I want it too. I’m sure it’s the same for anyone with a short torso.

It’s just really hard getting a swimsuit that is perfect. I’m really picky about the swim bottoms I wear, but I’m more flexible about the swim top. This year I thrifted two one piece swimsuits with the intention of cutting them into two pieces. I wanted a cropped tankini style which meant I couldn’t save the bottom part, but I’ll show you how if that is what you want."
