I've been eyeing this free pattern for awhile. Yours is so nice, and the pockets are a great idea. I'd skip the facings too.

It is adorable! I have been looking at the pattern thinking of making it for an upcoming cruise. Thank you for posting!

A really pretty interpretation of this pattern. I see a "summer bathrobe" in my future. Thanks for the reminder to print out this design. Another tree gone....

I think this probably is the best coverup ever and free pattern no less. This is just a wonderful combo of fabric and pattern and pockets.

Nice! I like the pockets you added-it looks great!

Mary, what you did with the pockets is ingenious! I am going to try it.

This is such a pretty cover-up. I love the story of the fabric. The pockets are the perfect addition to this pattern. I think it would be really nice out of french terry too. I have been wanting to make this, but I truly hate patterns that I have to print out! I think I need to just force myself.

Looks fabulous! I tried the pattern, but since the drawstring wasn't low enough, had to lengthen to top pieces. I also cut the skirt the biggest size the pattern came so I could gather it a little bit. I was working with a beautiful royal blue gauze fabric and I basically made the project more difficult than my skill level. It ended up in the scrap pile. I thought the same about the facings. Maybe I'll try again!

Cool! Love it:-)

Karen, I cut the pockets free-hand by center-folding the doubled fabric, and cutting it to paperback size. I zig-zagged clear elastic (while holding it stretched) a couple of inches down from the opening.

I love this! So cute! Please tell us how you did the pockets. It looks like the top of the pocket has elastic in it. Is that right?

Excellent review... will you be doing book reviews soon? particularly of pool side trashy paperbacks? Hope so!

What a fabulous use for this fabric. Hope your vacation was as fun as this cute coverup.

Thanks for posting. This is a great cover-up. I especially like the drawstring to make it pretend to have shape but still be very loose and comfy. I think it was the perfect garment for this fabric.

Very nice. The pattern looks like the sort of loose-fitting tunic-style tops Burda magazine has been offering recently so it might even work as a tunic in a light and colourful fabric and worn with a camisole underneath.

What a lovely vacation garment, fabulous as well as functional. Great review, I've downloaded this and was wondering how the sizing goes.

Great project! Just what I needed for my beach vacation! Love your light and airy fabric!

What a nice looking wrap! I was wondering if it'd be worth my time to download/print/tape the pattern, but I can see it's well worth it. I love the fabric's history—you have turned fabric from what was a lemon marriage into a lemonade very cool cover-up! It looks like it's soft too...seems yummy.
