Those little floaty floral embellishments on the top and bottom of the dress were amazing!
Just wasn't happy about the waistline. It had no shape (thanks so some worn out elastic)...
...but that's an easy fix! Time to Fit-It Felix!! (any other Wreck-It Ralph-ers out there??? I finally just saw and loved!!)
Had to start with that elastic waist!!
I removed all the old, worn out elastic first.
Next, I pinned new elastic to a safety pin and wove it through the waistline.
With the old elastic out, I measured the right amount that would give me exactly the waist cinch that I needed.
I stitched closed the opening where I wove the elastic through and then cut my dress a bit shorter!
I didn't want to say goodbye to the flowers at the bottom, but I'll find another use for those soon! I stitched a new hem next...
...and had my dress ready to wear!
I paired the dress with a fun vintage-y pink belt just to give a little extra color to the ensemble.
I just love those flowers at the top of the dress!
I love the new length and it's totally perfect for summer!
Just the thing to wear to a Venice BBQ. I felt like I was on vacation right at home!
This bubblegum pink just might me my new color of the summer? Thoughts? Any other pink takers?
