Ten Stylish Swimsuit Cover Up Tutorials For Ladies

Ten Swimsuit Cover Up TutorialsHi readers!

I’ve been spending a lot of time this summer at the beach with the kids, and I don’t have a nice cover up to wear over my bathing suit. Often, we’ll stay late at the beach, as some of our friends go to the same one and have a little BBQ. Here on the coast of  Southern California things cool off pretty quickly, and there and there are no decent bathrooms to change in at the beach we go to, so a cover up is a must.

So I compiled a little round up as much for myself as for you! These ten cover ups were my favorites. And although I love maxi dresses for the beach too, these tutorials are for shorter, more specific cover ups. Stuff you can easily throw over your damp bathing suit.

    You mean you don’t just drive to the pool wearing nothing but your bathing suit? ha! Good thing our pool is only a few blocks away because I don’t have a cover up and I always wonder what would happen if I got in a wreck. I keep saying I’m going to make a cover up for myself, but something else always gets made instead.
    I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for later today that links to your tutorial:
