Beating the Heat

As August approaches, it's been getting hotter and hotter here in Texas. So I decided to make a comfy little summer dress from this XL dress and a plain t-shirt.

I chopped off the top of the dress and the bottom of the shirt and attached the two in pieces at the waist. Then I created a casing and threaded through some elastic. Couldn't be easier!

Hi Carissa,
I thought you were in hot, hot, hot Texas as your post confirmed.
I am an hour south of Dallas, north of Waco.
Cute dress, this is one of my favorite summer styles. I wear these in place of sun dresses when I need more coverage.

Take a look at Carissa's blog for great details and pictures on this refashion. This one has elastic added.

Indeed, Mary, I am in Texas - in one of Dallas' northern suburbs actually.
