Learn how to make this super cute beach cover up with our simple DIY tutorial.
It’s a really unique piece and can be matched with all different types of tops, like this smocked tube top.
Sew the 4 strips lengthwise with right sides together. At the end of the strip, turn the piece so you sew the end closed. Then flip them all right side out with the Dritz loop turner.
Place the rectangles together with right sides facing. Fold the pieces in half on the short side.
Mark one inch from the fold and 13” down. Cut down the 1” mark for the first 10 inches and then slowly make your way to the fold at an angle at the last 3”.
Unfold the pieces and pin them together along the edge that was just cut. Sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
The seam that you just sewed is the crotch of the pants, so fold the pants accordingly. It is easier to sew the rest of the edges if you are looking at the pants this way.
Fold and pin all the edges in two times so you hide the raw edges. Then, take the strips and pin them on the inside of the hem on each side of the hips.
Sew the hem all the way around the pants.
