I simply couldn't resist this piece when I found it a little while back for a buck at the local pile sale.
(Little sidenote...in case you're wondering, I shot a whole lotta pieces at the old house before my parents left. Tried to stock up before I find my new 'before' location which is currently being scouted :)
I was completely addicted to the colors and the fun print, and it fit!!
I wasn't into the length but I thought with one easy change this would become my new favorite pre-summer dress.
I turned the dress inside out and began to trim across the bottom taking off about a foot of fabric.
I cannot wait to use this excess fabric somewhere else!! Just mulling some ideas in my head as we speak!
I pinned the bottom for a new hem...
...and sewed it in place.
This was such an EASY fix. One tweak and it's a new summery dress for a day in the sun!
It felt glorious outside today so I made the most of the afternoon...
...including spending some time at Pottery Barn Kids in their Star Wars section with mini, non-Marisa-sized, tables for coloring.
So what if I was coloring in R2D2 and Han Solo with Crayola's Forest Green crayon by myself. I went in to get a gift and got stuck in the crafty section. I obviously had no shame in my activity and not-so-secretly would have stayed there longer if I didn't have 12 more errands to check off my to-do list. I'll be back. (Wrong movie, I know, but "may the force be with you" just didn't work as a close.)
