DIY kid costume: Vintage swimwear

Summer may be long gone, but we love this sweet DIY vintage swimwear costume for Halloween.


  •  Striped or ruffled one piece suit- any retro looking suit will do
  • Straw bowler’s hat or floral swim cap – we glued this together from burlap scraps
  • Optional: beach ball- we painted a store-bought ball burgundy and white for a more vintage look


  • We made our floral swim cap by using a glue gun to attach fake flowers to a baby cap.

Alejandra likes ice cream, dancing and pretty things. You can usually find her exploring downtown Phoenix, where she lives, or singing to herself while writing in a coffee shop.
