Repurposed bathing suit for Betsy
My friend, Betsy, along with a bunch of my friends from college are all going to Vegas next week. We all went last year and had a fantastic time! We went during the Sweet 16 (college basketball), and Michigan State (my college), ended up making it to the final two teams! I'm a little sad I won't be going this year, but when Betsy asked me if I had any recommendations for a suit for the trip, and I told her I had just the thing!
I repurposed this bathing suit for her! It's a hot pink one-piece from the 80s. Betsy and I both rocked our one-piece suits last year. I love love love one-piece suits! So much classier sitting poolside in Vegas, sipping on mojitosm wearing a fabulous one-piece, versus most of the women with silicone, chugging beer and wearing dental floss. I simply added a giant bow to the lower back. The bow that I made was constructed using navy blue polka dot material from a vintage dress. I stiffened it with interfacing, and then I hand sewed it onto the suit.
