Swim Suit Cover Up (toddler size)
Hand towel (I used one that was 28L X 16.5W- bargain at Kohl's on sale for $2.99)
1 inch wide elastic tape
6 X 6 fabric square for small pocket (optional)
To make a basic pocket- with the wrong side of the fabric showing- fold the top edge down once. If you stop here it would leave a raw edge that would fray with usage. Fold the top edge down a second time- the raw edge should now be safely tucked inside. Sew into place.
I cut a piece of 1 inch wide elastic tape to 1.5 inches less than Rachel's chest measurement. She measured at 19 inches- I cut the elastic to 17.5 inches long. Feed the elastic tape through the casing. Sew the edges of elastic tape together. Place open edge of casing (mentioned above as the 2 inch area that I left unsewn). Align edges as desired and pin into place.
My model was already in bed for the night. I will add a picture with her wearing it soon.
