i'm looking for a pattern that would be suitable for a beach
coverup...one that is practical and attractive. I'm interested
in hearing what others have done...patterns and fabrics. I've just been using my husband's t-shirts for years and would like to step it up a notch this year.

Either the Cabriolet or the Peachy Beach would work to cover up in town. Try lace, terry, knit, gauzy.
Also, check out S2371. Versatile pattern with a tunic style for coverup.
Using a decorative stitch down the pleats ads interest.

I've been thinking of giving Burda 7207 a try. It needs a fabric with some stretch. Looks incredibly easy to make and wear -- you hardly need a pattern once you see the line drawing:


But the pattern is also only $3.60 on the Simplicity website.

Funny you should ask. Yesterday I finished up Kwik Sew 3505 for my DIL. I used white cotton crinkly eyelet gauze. I don't think the photo does it justice. Really should be modeled for the pic. You know how gauze is so flowy and crinkly--it doesn't come across on a still shot. But it's super easy to make and a pattern that would be easy to add length to.






Edited to add:

I just wrote a review of it here

I purchased McCalls 6552. This is a caftan pattern that I will make up in some white eyelet.
