How to DIY Victoria's Secret Swimsuit Cover Up without Sewing!
Summer is almost here! Can't wait to lay out on the beach or attend fabulous pool parties! I've been stocking up on swimsuit during the last few months (seen in my previous monthly haul videos), and definitely need more swimsuit cover ups. After researching online, I realized it's crazy expensive and costs more then my bathing suits! I have a Pinterest account and have seen a very popular cover up from Victoria's Secret, and thought I can definitely make it my self . I did research and purchased all my products from a local fabric store, Joann. This is my take on the item, but you can definitely add more to this simple silhouette with some great accessories, bling, and more.....
You can always make the cover up using a sewing machine too!

You clever girl! Okay, it's not exactly 'no-sew', but definitely easy-sew! I've made something similar, but in georgette, which isn't stretchy, so I'm going out today, to buy some red jersey material, & I'm making this. Thank you so much.
I really like the look of these beach wraps and have seen tons of them on eBay for 5 or 6 bucks, free shipping, but what I can't seem to understand is how the straps stay up in place on your shoulders, as the wrap, crossed over your front ,would want to pull itself apart, thus pulling the straps off your shoulders with it. I wonder if this is the case?
Really excellent and so simple. Thanks. I saw something similar on a website for like $30.00, I will take the $6.00 method and make some for all 5 of my swim suits for the same amount as buying one. One option to consider for the no-sew crowd is using double sided iron-on seam sealer. It gives you that finished like you sewed it look but you just ironed! I have used it for curtains and other items that I wanted a nice seam on but didn't feel like sewing.
I made two for myself n wore it at my vacation to Goa( I am from India) it's so beautiful. even pple out there were appreciating it.. luv it..n to b honest dis was the first diy I did from u tube. l luv ua channel ..stay blessed!!!
My trusty feet ahaha i nearly fell off my seat laughing and ive made 7 so far aha one for everyday of my vacation to spain and the colours ive made are blue yellow violet green teal purple and a pink one with the braided strapes orange which is my faveeee xxxx thanks so much
I loved that cover up from VS when I saw it, but the price is definitely ridiculous for basically a piece of fabric with shoulder straps. Thanks for the tutorial! I will probably make several of these. I have tons of jersey fabric lying around. :)
hey, loved your video! :) Bought 1 yard cotton cloth, in yellow..copy copy.. from Micheals! But it was just a tiny piece of cloth that wont cover me up. I am 5'3, 34DD, 130lbs. So, went back and got a 2 yard piece and made from that! It definitely came out great! Thankyou :)
You are beautiful and I really love your make tutes. I love this as well and am bidding on 2 from ebay, but to see how easy it is to make makes me want to make one today. I do have one suggestion. Yours is a more modest version that the Vic Sec one and that is great, but if you want one more like the original one, see if you can't find material that is wider off the bolt when you buy it. I am not sure if your material is 45", 54" or 60", but fr this item, I would go for the 60". Continued.....
if you choose to wear one, you'll need to use a fabric that will dry up faster, cotton will take a while to dry so you'll be walking around soaking wet. there's other options, if youre not comfortable in a bikini, you can choose to wear a high waisted bottom (which is the new trend) or wear a monokini (they have lots of cute ones) or you can wrap yourself in a thin sarong. Good luck and enjoy the sun!
