Tutorial Tuesday: No Sew Swimsuit Cover Up

Today's tutorial is so simple it doesn't require sewing (well maybe just a tiny bit of hand sewing) but the results are stunning and the perfect item for the summer holidays.

These wrap around beach/swimsuit cover ups only requires 1m of fabric and can be whipped up in under an hour.

There are 2 versions of this wrap dress, the first is from Doranda at Watch Out For The Woestmans, where Doranda uses a five piece braid and hot glue gun for her straps.
There's also this really cool and quick video tutorial by simpLymodish, using 3 piece braids and a tinsy bit of hand stitching for the straps - 

Not only are these cover ups perfect beach/casual wear, but they can also double up as a blanket to sit on whilst you top up your tan!

Our Cotton Lycra will be perfect for this cover up and you only need a metre! A few of my picks from the store:
