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

Thank you Lord for my Mother who taught me the joy of sewing, for my Father who encouraged my sewing, for the talent You gave me to sew, and for all the special people in my life to sew for.

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