We have been swimming a ton lately. It always seems like we have to run errands before or after we hit the pool and my little girl just goes in her swimsuit. So I wanted to make her a cover up that she could wear to the stores if we need to go somewhere. Did you know that ruffle fabric is great with water? It is! I’ve even made a swimming suit out of it for myself.
This is how I made it:
I took a bigger shirt of my daughters and measured how wide it was. I ended up cutting the fabric 1-2 inches bigger.
I cut two rectangles. These were 13″ inches wide. The length is just how long you want the cover up to go.
I put the front of the fabrics together and sewed up the sides.
For the straps, I cut two white pieces of fabric that were 4×8 inches. Folded them in half, sewed the side and then flipped it inside out.
I then sewed the straps onto the cover.
Here are the straps sewn on.
I decided that I wanted a cute flower on it, so I took one of the white ruffles and cut it. Then I just rolled it up. I then put a ton of hot glue onto the flower and put it onto the strap.
Once it was on, I moved the fabric so the white and pink were both showing.
And that’s it! Super easy and super easy. She just loves it!
I love it! I’m thinking that I need to make one for myself.
