Stretchy Wrap

A stretchy wrap is the simplest diy out there. Simply buy 5 or 6 yards of an appropriate fabric (100% cotton jersey is the most popular, or 100% lycra or polyester athletic mesh if you want to use it in the water) and cut it down to 20"-30" wide. Done! Jersey and athletic mesh do not need to be hemmed as they will not unravel. Bonus: most of these fabrics come 60" wide so you can get 2 or 3 wraps out of the fabric you bought.

Line: 32 to 31
 Safety Reminder: While hems are safe to sew by hand, it is not recommended to sew any kind of reinforcement stitches by hand. A sewing machine can provide more even tension and therefore more consistent, even and strong stitches.
