Beach cover up


I have been slowly getting back to sewing & I thought I would start with something simple before I get back to those Voque patterns so this is a beach cover up I made for a trip my husband is taking me on..........for our 20 year wedding anniversary.......I know 20 years?  Time has gone by so fast.........


& this is what my big hair will look like too as I doubt I want to pack my flat iron & deal with that everyday.....anyways in Metro Vancouver a beach cover up can cost more than $100.00 so I thought that was totally ridiculous so I made this one from the last of this knit striped cotton fabric that I got on sale last winter.  I did not use a pattern but it is real simple with only 3 pieces to sew together. I made it a hi/low style that I am liking at the moment.

Sew you later!
