How to Make an Easy Breezy Caftan for Your Summer Beach Cover Up

It’s true what they say: Life IS better in flip flops…

…and sunglasses, and hats, and caftans. 🙂

Yes, easy-breezy caftans.

With just two yards of fabric, you too can make this summery, beach cover-up in less than 30 minutes. Click here to find out how.


Doesn’t Rylee look great in it!!


She was such a good sport to head down to the creek on her lunch break to model this cute caftan for us.




Work it Rylee!!!


Behind the scenes…. crackin’ each other up:)



I felt a bit like the Paparazzi after the photo shoot when Cooper was helping Rylee walk through the water in her flip flops. (I think she totally looks like a movie star 🙂 )


Plus my heart just swells watching my son be a gentleman.

Oh yes, and the fun fabric was Paradise Palms from Spoonflower.
