QUICK FIX: blue dress and red tank

This lovely blue dress has been hanging in the back of my closet for a little over a year now. There's really nothing wrong the dress -- I just haven't had an occasion to wear it. I used to wear the dress all the time when I worked full time, throwing a cardigan over it and wearing cute black tights and knee high boots to make it completely work appropriate.


The length always bothered me whenever I wore it because the hem always hit the middle calf area. My skirts need to be above the knee or just above the ankle because anything different or in between looks weird. With a little bit of time on my hands, I decided to quickly fix the dress.


I found a dark red tank needing a little bit of attention. Despite the size listed on the inside tag, the tank didn't fit me and I knew exactly how to remedy the situation. The beauty of this project was no hemming! Woot woot! This girl was not going to mess with the hem of the placemats. Now, my beautiful tank is a teeny bit bigger and ready just in time for sweater weather!

Great job on both of these. I like the new double strap on the dress, and the tank is so cute! In fact I have a tank top that needs this treatment.

The lace insert looks great on the tank
