     Are you looking for quick, easy and fun to wear dress/swimsuit cover up for this summer?
                      Look no further....Simplicity 1100 might be the pattern for you!

This pattern is a re-issue from one published in 1971, and shows that good design can stand
                   the test of time. What's not to love? Wrap and tie.....ready to go!

My son and daughter-in-law will spending some time at a ocean side resort in Greece this summer, 
                and I thought she might like a little something to take along. For some reason,
                                   this fabric just shouted resort wear to me :-)

The fabric is a drapey rayon from JoAnn Fabrics, perfect for this pattern, and rolls up to next to nothing
         for packing.  I know, it looks a little long....still needs to be hemmed to my DIL's height.  

                                   Best thing of DIL loved it!

**UPDATE: Dear DIL loved wearing her swim suit wrap while in Greece, credit to my 
                                      son for some great pictures!
