Part Four - Free Fieldcrest® Patterns

The Apres Bain (After the Bath) terry cover-up is sweet and simple to make. Wear it from the shower or from the pool. Either way, with a pretty print, you will move confidently in this smart little cover-up made from towels. This pattern was issued in a complementary packet of patterns and instructions to adapt patterns (such as Vogue, Simplicity or McCall's) using Fieldcrest® towels, sheets, bedspreads etc. Though the bold prints and patterns from the mod era are no longer produced, a more classic version could be made from plush solids with embroidered trim.
