Knock, knock. Who's there?
you glad to see me, what are you wearing?!?
I love me some orange, but this isn't quite the look that I'm going for. Just give me a quick half hour and I'm going to have this ready to wear in public.
I started off by cutting the dress in half, trimming above the elastic waist, saving 1/2".
Two piece success!!
I pinned under the saved area above the elastic waist...
...and stitched it in place.
How about that?? Three major steps to go from not so much to beach ready!!
New skirt in this 80 degree weather? Yep, that would most definitely be the outcome of this project.
I paired my new and now not-so-overwhelmingly-orange skirt with my favorite Alternative Apparel burnout tank, Forever 21 ($6!!!!!) Sunnies, vintage Dooney & Bourke saddle bag, Frye sandals (these are similar), and brown elastic belt I scored at a swap party!
The floral drawing/design is so much easier to swallow when it's not covering my body!
This screams summer to me, so hopefully it will shoot off some warm weather vibes to those still dealing with the cold! I mean daylight savings has arrived, so we're totally on the path to summer.
Perfect way to kick off the week!!
