Breastfeeding Cover Free Pattern

My youngest daughter was always a hassle nursing under a nursing cover. Especially on the hottest days when my 3 older boys had soccer practices lasting 2 hours in the evening. Then soccer games the majority of Saturday. Leaving us both hot and irritated struggling to stay covered with the constant distraction on cheering. I prefer to be modest and prefer to keep covered while breastfeeding, yet wanted something more to allow bonding. Plus nursing leaves the breast so exposed during the colder seasons.
