DIY Super Easy Beach Dress- no pattern necessary!

     I love cover up dresses and best of all they’re so easy to make! They’re perfect for going to the beach or lounging by the pool. This particular one has a loose shape so it can fit anyone from XS to XL! It features long armholes (to show off a hint of skin) and a drawstring collar. It takes less than 20 minutes to sew and no pattern is necessary. Let me show you How to Sew an Easy Beach Dress:

Supplies
2 yards Rayon
Drawstring cord (I used macrame cord)

Using the diagram above, cut a diagonal line at the sides. The will make the armholes. After cutting the armholes, cut across the fold line to separate the dress into 2 pieces. Place right sides together and sew the side seams. Do not sew the armholes.

Cut the drawstring cord 36 inches long (I took 3 and braided them together). Attach a safety pin to the end and string through the casing on both sides.

    This is too cute and very versatile! By knowing how to sew this, you can easily make a top or dress by not cutting the sleeve opening too wide! Thanks for sharing this awesome tutorial!
