Bathing suit coverup from a thrift store dress

I found this collared dress that was too big. It is such a flowy dress, and the collar didn't really jive with the flowy-ness. Also the armholes were huge. I took the shoulder seams in by about 3 inches to raise the armholes and the hem. Then I cut off the neckline and did a bias finish. Instant bathing suit coverup!
