The Reece swim coverup is so fun for popping over when she hops out of the pool! This classic style features binding at the neckline and around the cap sleeve armholes. Length hits mid thigh and bottom has a sweet ruffle. Back neckline is slightly lower than front to easily pop over the head. Front and back empire yokes have the body shirred below for lots of room to twirl. Our fabric of choice was terry cloth, but knits would work great too. Monogram or embroider the yokes to match her favorite suit. Sizes 6M-16 are included in this pattern.
Recommended Fabrics: Please note this pattern is for knit fabrics only. At Patsy Aiken Designs, we always made our cover-ups in cotton rich terry cloth – usually a 75% cotton, 25% polyester blend. Knit interlocks, jersey, both printed and yarn-dyed stripes, with or without stretch, would also work well with this pattern. Additional yardage may be required to match stripes, or with print fabrics that have a one-way pattern. Terry cloth with nap should be cut with all pieces turned in the same direction. Prewash and dry fabrics before cutting.
