...and scooped it up when nobody was taking it. I just love the pink and green combo and wanted it to be mine!!
I feel like the print should have little whales or anchors on it just mainly for the color! The dress was just a little too big, so all I wanted to do was make it fit...here goes a few adjustments to do just that!
I started with the length first! It hit me just a smidge lower than the knees and I wanted it a little shorter. I cut off around four inches from the bottom...
...and then prepared a new hem!
Now the body of the piece was just too bit for me as well. I loved the scalloped edging (and scallops too, mmm, if anyone was wondering) and wanted to get rid of all the extra space right at the arms. When I tried the dress on, I pinched about an inch on each side to take in, and set down my pins.
I stitched the hem...
...and then stitched the body...
...and made two final adjustments before slipping the piece on! I retied the thin pink straps to make them a little shorter and did a little cinch and pinch action at the bust and safety pinned this area in place.
I put on my new dress and it fit perfectly!!
I love the new length too! It's not a huge difference, but I like that you can see my knees!
There was a breeze in the air and the dress just moved so effortlessly.
It's the perfect summer dress!!
I love that it works dressed down with flip flops on a Sunday afternoon or dressed up a bit more for a meeting or a get-together with gals for dinner.
Who's got two thumbs and wearing this dress again today because it's going to be about 83 degrees out?? Yep, you called it :)
Happy Monday, friends!
