So this floral print though...

Honestly I think I wore something like this when I was a kid in 1992!

The colors were so fun and summery feeling. I can't get enough of these "rainbow sherbet" colors! (PS, who else is a rainbow sherbet fan? I swear I dream about the Baskin Robbins variety at least twice a week!)

The thumbs up was me giving myself motivation that this was going to turn out AWESOME!

However, those layered pleats at the bottom just might have to say goodbye...

I started with my trusty scissors...

...and trimmed off the layered portion of the dress. I began to pin the raw edges of the top to prepare for a quick hem. Also, grab some fabric glue or use stitch witchery and iron the hem if you want to steer clear from the sewing machine!

I threaded my machine and stitched away!

Ooh, and this is what I was left with...

I feel pretty confident that something can still come from the above pile of flowery cotton fabric.

My new top is just the thing for the hot days ahead!

The pattern was SO overwhelming with the length and the ruffles, but paring down a bit makes the florals totally wearable and non-headache inducing.

With jeans, heels, a little clutch and my big sunnies, this outfit falls right in the center of casual chic!

And the beautiful thing about this cotton tank is that it'll work just as well as PJs or a workout top as well! Just all dependent on what you're looking for!

It still reminds me of Saved By the Bell but doesn't feel like it could have been a costume of Lisa Turtle's anymore!!
