Hot Patterns Peachy Beachy Poolside Cover-up http://contentm.mkt2178.com/lp/814/2043/HP_fabric.com_PEACHY_BEACHY_POOLSIDE_COVER_UP_MAY_2010.pdf?cm_re=SL1-_-crhdqtr-_-Beach%20Coverup

I used a white double gauze fabric with a black dandelion motive. The facings did not match up at shoulder seams, the pattern piece was a bit off so I made a new one. Only fiddly part was the casing which also joined the top and bottom pieces making it a bit more bulky. Markings on pattern were a bit sparse....

On reflection I think a contrast cording would look better and perhaps a black button, but I didn't fancy the colour bleeding when it was washed!  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

I’ve just returned from holiday and the garment was well used. The button opening makes it easy to step into and pull up rather than have to pull over your head.
