Modkid Hailey Cover Up Part 2

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

After making the Hailey Cover Up for myself, I knew Avery would like one too. I am convinced the Hailey Dress makes the perfect summer cover up pattern. You might as well get the Hailey bundle so you can make one for yourself too!

I truly love the effect the shirred elastic has, but I know some machines struggle with elastic thread. The post over on the Modkid blog today shows an elastic casing alternative. 

Again, I reached into my stash for eyelet fabric. A cover up is a great way to use eyelet fabric without having to provide a lining.

On Avery, the straight size 8/9 dress length ends up tunic length which I find perfect for dashing back and forth to the pool. I would certainly lengthen this for an actual dress. 

What summer trends are you looking forward to sewing this year? As you can tell, I dove right into the poolside styles.
