Today we were having a swimming playdate with one of my best friends since high school and her little boys. They love to come over and swim, sit on the steps in the pool, drink their juice boxes, eat their Chex Mix and splash each other with water. Well when I woke up this morning I realized I didn't have a swimsuit cover-up and so my sewing wheels started turning in my mind and I thought...I can make one! I took a stretchy fabric and whipped up this little number. I loved it so much that I wore it all morning with some skinny jeans and sandals, then threw on my suit and wore it outside to play with the kids in the pool. The top is even ruffled because of where I put the elastic casing and I even gathered the waist to give it more flair. Too much material always looks silly on me because I'm only 5 feet tall, so I made sure to keep the proportions right this time, made it shorter than I usually would wear it and not as bulky.
I will be making many more of these to wear all summer long as tunics!Also, check out See Kate Sew's blog post today! She featured my Swing Top and Pick-Me-Up Skirt Pattern and is doing a pattern giveaway! Also....there's a coupon code for my Etsy shop. Get my patterns 25% off if you know her code!
