It's been super stinkin' hot. No question about it. When it's crazy hot like this I can't bear to wear jeans. So in the summer time I tend to wear as many skirts and dresses as possible. (Cue picture of new summer dress)
I acquired this cute little number from a thrift store at the bargain price of $0.25. I was drawn in by the colors and the pattern, as usual. The dress had some problem areas though. First, it was just all around too big.
I pinned it up, took in the bodice AND the skirt, and took some length off the bodice by re-hemming the shoulders. Then I moved on to repairs.
The dress had a few holes.
And these HUGE pockets with bows on them.
I just had to remove the pockets. They were too much.
Finally I replaced a couple of buttons and I was all set.
Can't you just feel the summer breeze?
