I took the Alison bathing suit pattern, opened up the bottom and extended it. Getting the right hem shape was tricky, since it was shorter in the back at first! Anyways, I think I might get some cool beads to sew onto the top. I even bought some cute retro sunglasses to complete my look :) Keeps my covered and still stylish!
