This is a very simple design, a square gathered at the top with elastic, buttoned like a shirt, and with side slits curved in like in a shirt as well. The material has a beautiful black flock printed onto the checked cotton. It is a little heavier then I would have liked for this style. I saw this idea in a magazine, based on an Antipodium design, but they used very light gingham style cotton.
