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 simple it is to make this DIY Super Easy Beach Dress!
Supplies
2 yards Rayon
Drawstring cord (I used macrame cord
Sewing machine

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.

Next you're going to create a hem on the armholes to hide the raw edges. Using an iron, press down the edge of the armholes. Fold over one more time and press down.

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.
