How to make a Beach Wrap An easy sewing tutorial for beginners.

Let's make a beach wrap!!! I love the beach so much, but I don't necessarily want to walk from the hotel to the beach in my bathing suit and flip flops. So I created this fast and easy pattern to make a beach wrap. You can either use chiffon fabric OR you can use two scarves.

Supplies Needed:

  • 1 3/4 yards of Chiffon (min width of 40”)  (Or you can use two scarves)
  • 6 coordinating decorative buttons

Step 1: Cut the Chiffon into two pieces. Each pieces needs to be 62” wide X 20” tall. (TIP: Depending on which way you wear the wrap you may want to adjust the cuts. Please read all directions before cutting fabric)

Fold the raw edges over about 1/4 of an inch and sew the raw edges so that they don’t fray.

Step 2: Lay both pieces of Chiffon down on top of each other, wrong sides together.

Step 3: Measure and mark with a pin or clover clip at the following spots (in from each long end) 14 1/2 inches, 18 1/2 inches and 22 1/2 inches.

Step 4: Using needle and thread, stitch the two layers together at each of the points that you just marked and sew a button onto it at each of those points as well. (14 1/2 inches, 18 1/2 inches and 22 1/2 inches in from the left edge, and 14 1/2 inches, 18 1/2 inches and 22 1/2 inches in from the right edge)

Wearing your beach wrap. You can wear your beach wrap two ways.

The first way is to wear it with the buttons going along your shoulders/top of your arms.

When doing so..the part of the fabric that is 20” tall becomes the part that covers your body, and the 62” length becomes the sleeves.

(TIP: If you wish to make your wrap longer, then cut the fabric at 24” or at which ever length you desire)  

 

 

The second way is to wear it with the buttons going down your front and down your back.
