As the weather warms up, it’s time to hit the beach or pool. These beach cover up sewing patterns are perfect for throwing on when walking to the beach or pool (or while you’re chasing a child along the sand). They’re also great for keeping the sun off your shoulders while you’re not in the water.
Kimonos and kaftans are great options to throw on over your swimwear. There are lots of fabric options for sewing a beach cover up. You could use terry cloth or upcycle a beach towel to help you get dry when you get out of the water. Alternatively, you could go for something lightweight and sheer, such as chiffon or silk. Lightweight cotton is another option to consider.
Whatever your style, here’s a great selection of beach cover-up sewing patterns, including some free tutorials.
