O Porto, Portugal
This summer, I went to a summer festival, and what I realized was that I needed comfortable clothes that wouldn’t get dirty easily. So after coming back, I went through all my burda magazines and selected several patterns. I was immediately drawn to this one, because it works as a beach cover-up. Plus it was tagged as easy, so I decided to give it a try!
Although the pattern was different than I am used to (there’s not a symmetrical front and back piece), the sewing was easy. I made this is in one afternoon and wore it the next day. I still haven’t tried as a beach cover-up because summer here in Portugal seems to be long gone, but it also works with a top underneath (:
