Swim Suit Coverup Butterick 4526

Happy Independence Day!

I've lived in South Florida for 12 years and I think I've been to the beach maybe four times.  The holiday weekend was the perfect time to take the kids to the beach.  There was one problem.  I didn't have a swimsuit  cover-up.  Like a mad woman I search through my sewing patterns stash.  Then I found the perfect fabric.

This was my first time making a Butterick pattern.



I bought this pattern in November 2016.  I originally wanted to make View A.  
At the time I thought that making a swimsuit would be super easy and I was going to knock it out and have a brand-new swimsuit to wear for summer 2017.  I was wrong about that after looking at a few YouTube videos about making our swimsuits I realize that this process will take a lot longer and I moved on to my next project.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Great instructions and easy to follow

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If I make a swimsuit this summer I will make this wrap again.  This is a great pattern and a quick make.
Conclusion: 
This pattern has one piece!!!  Yes one!  This was a quick make.  It took about an hour to make this project. That includes cutting of the pattern and fabric.  I shocked when I saw the darts in the back of this wrap.  I cut a size 18 straight through.  This was truly a quick and easy make. 



Have a wonderful 4th of July!
From My Family to Yours!
