Many people associate the Hawaiian costume with the sea, sun and summer vacations. This outfit is most appropriate for a beach holiday in hot weather. However, it is also suitable for a New Year's club costume party. True, the materials in these cases must be used different.

It is necessary

  • - open swimsuit;
  • - tinsel;
  • - tapes;
  • - artificial vines;
  • - flowers;
  • - linen elastic;
  • - braid;
  • - a needle;
  • - threads;
  • - scissors.


Step 1

Start your costume making with the skirt. You can make it from different materials. If you decide to make such a costume out of Christmas tree tinsel, then choose the one with soft long hair. Both satin ribbons and artificial plants will do. Cut the tinsel into pieces equal to twice the length of the skirt. It can be any, but most often to the knee or just below. If you are making a suit out of satin ribbons, cut the edges diagonally or overcast them.

Step 2

Cut off a piece of elastic. Sew it into a ring so that the skirt can be worn freely. It is better to take a wide elastic band that stretches less. You can also make a belt from a corsage ribbon. In this case, you need a clasp.

Step 3

Put a double-folded strip of tinsel or ribbon on the belt. Align the edges. Sew the strip to the elastic. Tinsel can be sewn on, in principle, with any thread, since the stitches will still be hidden under the pile. If you are using ribbons or artificial vines, then the material for stitching should be exactly the same color. For satin ribbons, silk threads are preferable. Sew on the rest of the strips so that they completely cover the belt.

Step 4

Decorate your bra. Tinsel can simply be sheathed on all sides. It is better to make multi-colored roses from ribbons and sew them along the neckline, the lines of the armholes and the bottom of the swimsuit. The rosette can be made as follows. Cut a piece of tape 10-12 cm long. Sew small stitches along one long edge with a needle-forward seam. Roll the tape into a tube. Gather the sewn edge tightly and sew through it with a few cross stitches. Spread out the free edge. Sew the rose to your bra. You can also use artificial flowers by cutting off their stems.

Step 5

Make a necklace with flowers. Try to keep it in the same style as the rest of the costume. Wash roses from ribbons or artificial flowers on a ribbon of a matching color, best of all green. Make a head ornament in the same way. This is a headband with flowers attached to it. Arrange them as your imagination dictates. If you have differently shaped shells on hand, make a second necklace. Complete the suit with a flower bracelet.
