Today I decided I needed to make a beach cover up to wear to the beach. So I pulled out New Look 6283 and a little over a yard of Liberty cotton voile peacock Hera print bought at Micheal Levine over a year ago. I made view C which used the least amount of fabric and just barely fit the pattern in. This pattern is really simple. There are two skirt pieces, a back piece on the fold, and two front pieces. No facings or closures. Perfect for beginner seamstresses.
Instead of ties, I sewed some elastic into the casing. I was that short on fabric. The whole project was cut and finished in less than two hours. I didn’t make any changes to the pattern, and cut a size 12.
My daughter is learning to surf and spends hours in the water so I’m often hanging out at the beach, swimming, reading and napping. Oh, the stress!
Sometimes we go to the market or out to eat after, so a little cover up is essential for when I don’t want to get out of my bathing suit. I could probably throw some shorts on under this too, since it’s maybe a little too short…..yes, I’ll wear shorts too.An easy to make and well priced pattern at 3.99. I’m loving New Look! And no, I’m not an affiliate. I just like them!
