Wrap Maxi Dress / Coverup Vacation DIY

I had leftover fabric from my Criss-Cross Top DIY and decided to make a simple wrap dress to serve as an airy maxi or as a swimsuit cover-up.  I'm planning on packing lightly so will be using a primarily black palette with little bits of color here and there.  Makes it easier to mix and match!

Difficulty: Easy-Intermediate

Time: ~2-3 hours

Pattern:  McCall M6024 A (minus the ruffles), elongated skirt to maxi length, used a rolled hem on all raw edges

Materials: ~1.5-2 yards of fabric - I used a lightweight knit from Fabrics R Us in San Jose

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!


  1. super cute!!!

  2. Ah!! That pattern is awesome!! Planning on a vacation soon so you can test it out? :)

  3. Love it with the obi belt and the pattern looks fab!

  4. you're so cute, "i had extra fabric, so i just made a dress" like that's something we all do ;).


I'm the type of gal who gets giddy when I receive mail - it's no different with comments! I really appreciate the feedback and love hearing from you :)
