I made this swimsuit cover-up from McCall’s 5400 pattern. It was simple to sew, making it with french seams on the side and sleeve seams. The fabric is a lovely silk chiffon in a coral print from Milly that I purchased from GorgeousFabrics.com. The top ended up a bit large on me, so I may go back and add an elastic waist or some elastic shirring to give it more shape.
