Sarongs are a popular swimsuit cover-up item for women of all ages. The sarong is not only a stylish way to cover up, it is simple and convenient as well. While sarongs are sold in swimwear shops everywhere, they can often be expensive. Fortunately, it is easy to make an inexpensive homemade sarong. With common sewing supplies, anybody with a basic sewing knowledge can make a sarong in almost no time at all. Best of all, you can customise a homemade sarong to match the colour and style of any swimsuit.

Cut out a rectangular piece of fabric that is 62.5 cm (25 inches) wide and 45 cm (18 inches) longer than the circumference of the waist.

Fold under the edges of the fabric 6 mm (1/4 inch) and iron the folds in place. Fold the edges over 6 mm (1/4 inch) more and sew the folds in place.

Cut a piece of fringed trim that is long enough to wrap around all the edges of the fabric. Sew it on along the edges.
