I bought this dress at the grocery store–and, yes, that was my first mistake because you can’t really try something on at a grocery store–got it home, and though it fit nicely, was so low cut I couldn’t have worn it anywhere.  I couldn’t even have worn it as a nightgown.  So, after it had hung on the back of my bathroom door for a while, I hauled out the sewing machine and altered it into a swim cover/skirt.

Here is the dress as I bought it. I love the fabric!
And here is the dress as it is now.  This will make a great swim cover. I’ll have to take shots of it as a skirt another time.

I’m not going to be able to do much with the top, but I am going to save the waistband, and sew another contrasting fabric to that as a skirt.

Since I have the sewing machine set up, I may as well use up the fabric I bought last year, and sew a few sundresses.  It is freaking hot, and jeans just don’t cut it!
