Bring it on!

After searching high and low for a little wrap skirt/cover-up to wear over my swimsuit, I finally caved in and made one yesterday.

I've had the pattern for years (McCalls 2192) and had to modify it a bit (the waist was about two inches above my belly button).
I bought the fabric at Hancock Fabrics for $5 a yard a couple of months ago.
All in all, I'm very impressed with myself. (See those cute flip-flops?)
Sea and surf, here I come!

Pin It!

Oh you will enjoy your holiday!!!!

Well, that is precious...and it sure beats anything out there in ready to wear. I love it and the colors are scrumptous! Plus, you must not have a lot to cover up based on the width of that precious skirt...I fear my cover-up would have to be a bit wider!

Enjoy your holiday...I'm not far behind you on hitting the beaches...we're going to Costa Ricca...we'll have to compare notes when I get back...I've never been to Hawaii...so I would love to see how the 2 compare.

Blessings...

The skirt is perfect! My first thought when I saw it was "How is she going to wear it? It is so cold this week that we had to turn our furnace back on!" and then I realized you are going on vacation. That explains it. Have a lovely time!

What a great project. Nothing like being able to whip something up yourself when you can't find it anywhere else.

Perfect flip-flops too. Enjoy the water.

I'm having twiddletails withdrawals! LOL Come back come back wherever you are, lol. Not to mention I'm terribly jealous if you are still on vacation, I want a longer one too!
