I started with this sundress that was just a little shorter and less flattering than I like. It also had broken straps, so rather than repair it, I made it into something I'd been needing for a while: a long-sleeved cover-up for the beach!

If you'd like to learn abut that project, here's the story!
It closes with a pair of simple ribbon ties. I made ties at ties at the waist and the neck, so I can wear it open, tied only at the waist (which I think is the best look) or tied at both the waist and neck for maximum sun protection.
I made the sleeves extra long (for maximum sun protection again) but put in some drawstrings to keep the sleeves under control for when I actually need to use my hands!
