For today’s piece, we need to go back to Day 117 of this lil’ blog. :)
For those of you who were wondering what was going happen to the bottom part of this dress…wonder no more! :)
I needed something that would work as a cute coverup to wear erranding before I ventured over to a friend’s place for an afternoon swim!
I laid my leftover dress scrap upside down, and placed one of my best-fitting dresses over it, right in the center. This is going to be my template!
I pinned along the outside of the template dress…
I left everything from the armholes up open, placing two pins right at where the shoulders of the template dress start.
I sewed two seams, one on each side of what was about to be my new dress!
Then, I sewed my shoulders down!
Now my sweet new coverup is ready to head off for an afternoon at the pool! :)
I must say, I’m quite happy to know someone with access to a private pool! It makes the SC summer heat somewhat bearable! :)
Good company & good beer make for a great summer day! :)
