Upcycled Swimsuit Made From a Pair of Pants

"This pair of pants I found at a local thrift store made a terrible pair of pant, but it makes a great swimsuit!

I did some upcycling and turned them into a classy swim dress that I love wearing. The pants were a stretchy, poly/spandex knit, so they were well-suited to being turned into a bathing suit.

The colors worked so well for my hair and skintone, and I'm so happy with the end result. Swimwear isn't as difficult to sew as some people think. Follow along as I recycle some trash into treasure!"
