We spent this week at the beach! Doesn't get much better than that in my book. I L-O-V-E the beach!!!!!
It seemed like every day on our way to the beach I needed to stop by the store for something. snacks, water, ice..... it's always something. My swimsuit is one of those dress looking ones. I had no beach cover up and just throwing shorts on underneath looked a little strange....like I was a 2 year old picking out my own clothes. So the other day I decided it was time to make a cover up. I didn't want to go buy fabric and I remembered about this box of shirred fabric I scored at a yard sale. So I grabbed it and made my cover up. It's nothing fancy, but it serves it purposes and it took about 3 minutes to make.
Here's my pre-shirred fabric.
Bust measurement - 1" = how wide to cut fabric.
Fold in half widthwise and sew the long edge.
I didn't even bother hemming the bottom (SHHHH!!!!) It won't fray so I didn't worry about it.
Then put it on and head out for the beach!!! Don't forget to stop and get the ice.
