I have been wanting to make this beach cover up / dress
ever since I saw it on Pinterest about two months ago.
Finally I did it.
This was super easy to make with very little sewing.
I can't wait to wear it.
Victoria secret beach cover up
Things you need
- Scarf *2 yards by 1 yard
- 6 safety pins
- Scrap piece of tee shirt
- Sewing machine.
- Matching thread
Cut four strips of tee shirt material 1 1/2 inches wide
stretch the material so it make a tube then measure
2 of them 11 inches long.(Arm Straps)
and 2 at 36 inches long ( Back Straps)
this dress fits my size which is 5'7" 135 pounds.
if you are bigger make the arm straps a little longer
smaller a little shorter.
attach the arm straps and the back straps on with your safety pins
Try it on.
Now is the time to adjust the straps if you need to.
If you like how it fits, sew your arm straps on to your scarf
Sew the back straps to the scarf.
you can wrap the back straps around and tie them in the front
to make an empire waist dress/ cover up.
or just tie it in the back
I added the strap for extra support and a different look.
Also,if you used a scarf that was 2 yards by 2 yards it would be a maxi dress.
Beach cover up or sexy dress,
Lots of <3,
