We're going on a beach trip this weekend! Woohoo! And I scored this bathing suit top at the end of last season for $5! Awesome! However, halter top is all the rage and you can't find a nice looking regular strap suit anywhere. And being a little more well endowed, shall we say, a halter top is a pain in the neck....literally. So my brain started working. Can I turn this halter top into and over-the-shoulder strap suit? YES!!
First to Joann's. I found these metal bathing suit hooks. Sorry I didn't take a picture of the package. They're in the aisle with all the other hooks and brackets. At this point my brain is still working trying to figure out if this will work.First, sew a small piece of ribbon about 2 inches ad folded in half onto the back of the suit. I zig-zag stitched numerous times back and forth for more security. Of course it's preferable to have a color that coordinates with the suit but I amazingly didn't have black.
I didn't have pictures of the next step. Thread the strap through the loop of the hook. Have someone help you pull the straps to where it's most comfortable and supporting in the front. Loop the end back towards the top and sew the end to the strap again using a continuous zig-zag stitch. I know that sound confusing but you'll get it once it's in front of you.
And this is what you get. I would have modeled it for you but...um...yeah:) I like it a lot better and it's so much more comfy.
By the way, the metal hook was only $1.50! woohoo!
