I found this on pinterest a while back and FELL IN LOVE. Of course I did, it’s from a certain lingerie store that has a secret! Shhh and I love just about everything they make! Let me just tell you…I am all about the comfort. Whenever I
go went clothes shopping (I’m poor now), I would always be looking at the flowy hippie stuff while friends would be looking at the sexy stuff. It became a joke after a while, they’d ask me “what do you think of this dress?” and I’d say “is it comfortable?” or “it looks comfortable, get it”. I don’t care! I’m good at combining comfort and cute! When I try…..lol. So I saw this bathing suit cover up on pinterest and I knew I needed to make it, and knew it would be super easy….and I did make it, and it was super easy! I think even a beginner could make this, Clouds of Colour! . The only thing I’d do differently, is use another type of fabric. I used jersey knit (my bed sheets actually, so it was totally free! *Woohoo!*) but I’d use a cotton/spandex/polyester blend next time.
So I started by cutting my rectangle. In the picture, it looks like the length of the wrap is just as wide as the models arm span. So I held the fabric up, marked it, and cut it. Length wise, as you hold it up, see where you would want it to come up to on you, and cut. Next time I’ll be making mine shorter.
Roll the folded part inside of your circle, and fold it in half. If you want to iron it as this point in time, you can. I think I may use some crocheted lace next time for the arm holes, wouldn’t that be cuteee?!
Now, back to the wrap. I folded in my raw edges twice, and pinned them down. Luckily, this fabric curls in at the ends, so it wasn’t that annoying. Leave the curved areas alone, they’ll be covered by the arm holes later. You could also leave these raw if you want. As long as you’re using a fabric that doesn’t fray, it would be fine!
Here’s how to put it on!
Can’t wait to wear it to the beach this year! It will definitely be accompanied with my sunbathers mat
