Easter Dress and a Bolero

Every Easter I like to wear a "new" dress to church. I bought this Maxi Dress (for .99 cents) and intended to wear it as-is, but there was a little problem...

A lil too much skin in the back...

I decided to cut some length off from the dress and make a Bolero shrug to cover the crochet.

I've been on a Maxi Dress kick for a while, but I do like the new high/low hem. Sometimes Maxi dresses can be too hot in the Summer.

What I like the most about this bolero is that it's completely optional. Instead of inserting a modesty panel in the back that I would've been stuck with permanently, I can wear or not wear the bolero (to fit the mood of my modesty du jour) :)

I hope everyone had a great Easter!

Great dress style on you. I love the high low. It really looks great on you. The bolero is great for church, or anytime you don't want bare shoulders. So pretty.

That's fantastic! I tried making one of those before but it came out too snug. I think using part of a dress was perfect.
