Fun In The Sun

With the temperatures getting warmer it's just about time to start going to the beach. Because lets face it, a majority of the year is beach weather in LA. For whatever insane reason, I realized I don't own any cute cover-ups. If you're at all like me, you probably just throw on some denim shorts and a breezy top. To remedy this, I decided to make this really simple cover-up so I'm prepared when I become a beach bum this summer. The great thing is that it's cheap, super quick and you can never have too many cover-ups!

Prep It:
  • Sheer fabric of your choice
  • Sewing machine or needle & thread
  • Thread matching fabric base color
  • Scissors

 Do It:
  • Start out by folding your fabric horizontally 
  • Cut a hole at the top (where the fabric is folded) for your head to go through
  • Next, measure from the fold how wide you want the openings for the arms to be (Mine is 11.5 inches) 
  • Sew a line from the bottom of the opening straight down
  • Hem the bottom if you don't want the fabric to fray and wear it as a tunic
  • OR, cut straight down the middle in the front to create an opening and hem both sides
