To get out of the store without a daughter in tears, I hastily promised I would make her a swimsuit cover up! When I got in the car, I wondered to myself what my plan was...
Thanks to my best friend Google, I quickly stumbled upon this darling tutorial from one of my favorite crafty/sewing blogs, Crafterhours:
I quickly found a few old Target beach towels and thought I'd give it a try. This is a draft-your-own-pattern type of a project. For me, that is always a risky proposition. I never quite know if it's going to turn out. Lucky for Jane it did, because there was NO time to spare:
Turned out pretty cute.
Except, maybe it's a little too long?
And maybe I could have done the A-line shape better?
And I hated doing the bias tape binding on the neck and arms.
But it was the perfect beach accessory, and Jane loved wearing it!
Um, probably I need to make another one.
