Recently, I took a little trip down to Mexico with my family. I really needed some new cover-ups to wear while I was down there (And also for summer, I have a feeling I will be spending most of my days at the pool now that my kids are a little bit older this year). I found a few caftan style cover-ups on Anthropologie.com (no longer available online), and decided to make my own, with handmade tassels and all. You guys, this is the EASIEST sewing tutorial ever. My fabric is a gauze from Hancock Fabrics, and it’s probably deeply discounted now if you can find it in your local store. You can find the full tutorial on BERNINA’S blog, Weallsew.com.

I wore it for a week straight while in Mexico, and I felt pretty fab in it too. It’s a great cover-up that will flatter any body type. You can also embellish it with pom poms, or even pre-made tassels too. Lot’s of options with this one!

Enjoy and happy Memorial Weekend everyone!
