This is a really useful pattern that I know I’ll make again and again and I learnt a new phrase ‘bellows pocket’ which were fun to try.
As a beach cover to keep the sun off this is perfect.
I feel the curved hem gives a stylish finish and was very pleased with the instructions and the result. I elected to only do 2 pockets at hip height as I didn’t want extra bulk at the bust. You can’t really see it in the pics but I top stitched with a metallic silver thread. I used quite a heavy linen and just about got away with the pockets as there is some thickness to sew through with the pocket design.
I would advise keeping your fabric choice fairly lightweight.
