…but what about all this?

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!

Just like this!

I pinned along the outside of the template dress…

You can outline this in chalk if you like.

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!

Digging that neckline! 🙂

I must say,  I’m quite happy to know someone with access to a private pool!  It makes the SC summer heat somewhat bearable!  🙂
