The Surfen Swim Cover Up Sewing Pattern
The Surfen Swim Cover Up Sewing Pattern is a quick and easy cover for the beach or pool. With minimal cutting and fitting, this circular short and sassy dress harkens back to the bohemian days of yore. Life is on the beach; make your wardrobe fun and carefree! The square neckline with a single button closure makes The Surfen Swim Cover Up fuss-free. The 3 quarter sleeves are formed out of the main body of the cover-up and provide much-needed sun protection while being amazingly light and fashionable.
This cover-up (or dress) features a unique circular design with only 2 seams that shape it once the neckline is attached. Because of the minimal seaming, the cover-up will last multiple seasons and grow with your child. The neckline is fully lined and all seams are covered and hidden. Instructions include optional pom or tassel accent trim (mini poms are shown in the cover image).
This pattern is wonderful for beginners who are ready to move on to more unique designs and stand out on the beach. It is a fast and fun project and is perfect for boutique shops who want something different. This pattern uses either traditional cotton fabrics or alternative materials like the beach tapestry used in the cover photo (circular tapestries work well with the circular design of the garment, are very affordable, and easily obtainable).
