Beach Towel Dress

Beach Towel Dress

Say hello to sunshine! The Beach Towel Dress is a fantastic easy sewing project for welcoming warmer weather. Most swimsuit cover-ups for women are somewhat impractical - if they are made of thin material, then they are rendered useless when your swimsuit is wet.

Instead, wear a dress made from a beach towel! It is literally the perfect swimsuit cover-up at the beach or the pool, and this pattern is so easy to make. Dress practically for fun in the sun with this project.

What a great idea. A beach cover up using a large size beach towel. This is so much better than trying to wrap yourself in a flimsy cover-up at the beach or hotel pool side. I like the idea of using the towels finished edges for the top and hem edges.

Could this be made plus-size by sewing two cheap beach towels together first? Then shirring and closing the side seam? Would an experienced seamstress please advise? Thank you!

I think I read last time I came across this, that it was too bare on the shoulders for a cover-up. I agreed until I thought, "Oh, yeah, you need something to cover you up to and from a hotel or motel pool."

No pattern needed! Directions have all the information in them! Straight forward! Great project!!!

Read carefully-all directions are there!

Project Type: Make a Project Time to complete: In an evening Sewn by: Machine Easy Click Here for Sewing Pattern ----- this was copied and pasted from above. I clicked on the link and the directions were there written out. I say directions as they are more directions than a pattern as there is no cutting involved.

@dschmidt13 6963850 and digupstuff: We are aware that the pattern is available for purchase, but the linked page provides materials and directions for making the dress, so we thought our readers would appreciate the inspiring idea. Hope you enjoy it! -- Editors of AllFreeSewing
