Swim Suit Cover Up Makeover #2

Let's continue on with our "It's Beach Time" inspired closet makeovers.  Each day this week you will get to see something I have refashioned for our tropical vacation.

I showed you this maxi I had in my closet the other week.

I was actually able to wear it when I was 9 months pregnant.  So it was time for a revamp.
This was my inspiration photo from pinterest.

So I went and picked up some trim from the fabric store to try my hand at changing the style.  I actually took in a few inches from the elastic around the waist band in both the front and the back of the dress.  Then I cut the length of the straps into 3 strips so I could braid them, and sewed then to the new trim detail in the back.

What do you think?  Another good beach worthy improvement!

Now wouldn’t these pictures look so much better on the beach?!
