When a man points a finger at someone else, 
he should remember that
 four of his fingers 
are pointing at himself.
~Louis Nizer  
    I have finished!  Four  (count 'em) four  little swim suit
cover-ups, all done!  I can't wait  to see the little girls in
 them together at the pool.
I did this cover-up alittle differently.
 I gathered the little skirt on my sewing machine,
 but I put the rest of it together using the serger.
  I am still learning how to use it, but it went
together so quickly, and the seams were
neat and clean.

I have a new font,Master Circle, and I love the way
that the letters can be intertwined.  It is going to take
practice moving the ends of each letter to the right spot,
 but I think the more I do it the easier it will be.
     The binding was made from 2 1/2 inch strips,
 folded lengthwiseand neatly pressed.
 I sewed them down matching the raw
edges from the wrong side, then turning
the fold to the front and sewing it down with the
number 10 edge foot.

I struggled a little making the patterns for these dresses
 because the pattern wasn't included in the information from
Crafter Hours.  Since I began the first one, she is offering a
pattern that is adaptable for boys and a straighter version for girls.
It would be sooo much easier with a pattern to follow.

I am hoping that my next post will be 4 girls  all covered up
  in their newbeach dresses!

  1. I love the blue, green, and pink combo! That is a beautiful font too. I just bought a girls cover up pattern this week so I may be making a few soon too!
