DIY Beach Coverup

Since I live at the beach (don't be a hater), I'm always on the lookout for a cover-up. Preferably one that is both classy, comfortable, and easy to wash and wear.

Lucky for me, I found one in a DIY one in the Martha Stewart Living magazine.

Step 1:

Stack 2 cotton scarves (about 2 by 6 feet is a good size), right sides facing. Use a basic running stitch to join the scarves lengthwise, leaving an opening of about 18 inches in the center for a neck hole.

Step 2:

The finished cover-up will have a V-neck and a seam in the front and the back.

A reader also commented about creating one using fall colors and belting it to wear in the fall. Nice!
