Hello,

I'm not finding much help on the net, so I figured I'd get the best results here.

I found some nice fishnet material to make a swim suit cover up, but I'm not sure how to hem/cut it up.  A few sites said to use bias tape, which I would try to make my own to give it a bit of stretch; still, I have no idea how to attach it.

Any suggestions would be great, and I appreciate your time. Cheesy

I would encase the cut edge between double fold bias tape (the narrower one, but that's personal preference!).  Then just sew up with a regular straight stitch.  Don't try to sew one side then flip, just top stitch through all the layers.  That way the netting is firmly encased and won't pull free.
