I’m back from the dead. It has been a horrible last week around our house, but life is starting to come back. I now have a mountain full of housework and work work to do. And of course I’m still trying to fit in all my alterations before we leave on our trip.
This one I actually finished up before I got sick, but finally managed to get some after photos.
I bought this navy jersey dress at Target last year. It was comfortable, but since I bought it for a swim suit cover up it looked a little too much like an office dress. Everything was a little too covered up!
I basically trimmed this dress everywhere. I took in a couple inches from the neckline and maybe an inch around the arm holes and then 3 inches from the hemline. Here is how it looks now.
It looks a little more “beachy”. The back is where I made the most dramatic difference, I ended up creating a deep vee in the back to essentially make it backless.
The bonus with this dress is that once you put on a belt and a pair of shoes, you can definitely wear this at night going out.
So now I have a versatile dress that can be worn out one evening and then a few days later I can throw it on as a beach cover up. Which means more room in my suitcase for something else!
