I love my new Beach Towel Dress! Yes, made from an actual beach towel. Actually, a $3.97 beach towel from Walmart! What I don't like is being my own model! Oh well. I got the tutorial off Made, which if you haven't noticed is one of my favorite sewing blogs. She uses a pattern to make hers but I just took my hip measurement and added 6 inches and sewed the top with elastic thread then sewed the side together. I think when I do it next time I will add more rows of shirring..I got too anxious to finish, and I will cut a front and back piece, I like having two side seams. I can't wait to use it! It is so hard to juggle my towel and get R in one while making sure he doesn't run off while getting all our stuff together. I am always soaking wet while everyone else gets a tad more dry. In addition, I am usually holding him while he is still wet, but her newest addition will hopefully change that too. She also just added TODAY a beach robe pattern, which R totally needs! I think with a Cars2 or Thomas beach towel though. So after nap we are off to the pool again!
