Shirred Towel Cover-up Dress!

The perfect Beachwear!
Everyone likes to wrap themselves in a towel after swimming!

This cover-up dress is best!

With simple straps that match her swimsuit...she is ready to go from the beach or pool!
Perfect for wearing to a picnic or fun place that you "might" get wet!

Just look at that tan!

Step 1: Supplies:

Okay, you'll need some basic sewing skills.

You'll have to sew "straight" lines...you'll at least get lots of practice!


Sewing machine

Top thread

Elastic thread

empty bobbin

Lightweight towel (heavy plush towels will not work well...think cheap!)

Some double folded bias tape, ribbon or something for straps (optional)

Iron with steam setting

That's very cute!
