Description

I used the instructions put up by calicocouture to make this coverup. I love the design – it’s flowy and comfortable but still has some shape thanks to the tie in back. The one thing I added was a bit of gathering at the ends of the sleeves. I used fabric found at SCRAP in SF that turned out to be really wide, so the gathering just helps keep the sleeves out of the way. Unfortunately I’m nowhere near a beach, but I’ll wear this to the pool soon!

Material Notes

I’m not sure what the material would be called – stretchy mesh that inspired some cursing while sewing!
