I’m excited to share my newest free pdf pattern, a Kimono Swim Suit Cover Up, with you today!
We have a beach vacation coming up, and I wanted to make a new cover up to wear around the pool. I’ve been seeing these Kimono style tops and cover ups all over the place, and wanted to make one for myself. I’d planned on using the leftover fabric from the maxi dress I made for my daughter last week, but I was about a quarter yard short.
Since I had special ordered the coordinating purple lace for the cover up, I had to make a mad dash to the fabric store to find something else that would work. (I found 2, and took a poll on facebook– so if you chimed in, thanks! I might use the other fabric on a cover up for my missy!)
You will love how easy this is to make. It’s basically just the shoulder and side seams, plus a few hems, and you’re done!
The cover up is one size fits most, (I typically wear a medium.) You can shorten or lengthen the cover up to your taste and if you are very slender I included guides where you can adjust the pattern width. (Just cut the pattern down the middle lengthwise and overlap by a couple of inches. You will need to redraw the bottom hem slightly.)
