Right now, I don't have an enormous amount of time for sewing and craft projects, but on Saturday while I was cleaning my room (it needed to happen) and sorting a few winter clothes out of my closet, this dress (above, left) caught my eye. It was a hand-me-down but was a little on the short side. I'd worn it before with leggings, but I really hadn't worn it in a good long while.
I got the idea that if I just took off the tank top part of it, the bottom would be left and would make a nice skirt that I would wear more often. So, I ripped out the seam that held the top and bottom of the dress together, above the waistline, and wha-la! I wore this skirt to church on Sunday. See my outfit below. There was no sewing required and the raw edge tucks nicely into the waistline.

This weekend was a blast, I'd say. On Saturday Dad and Ad ran their first 5k together. We all got up at the crack of dawn and went into town to watch them run. Then we watched a parade and got some carnival food (e.g. funnel cake, snow cone, roasted corn, etc.). Yesterday (Sunday) was church and lunch with family, then swimming and dinner with family. (I got to see all my grandparents in one day!)
How was your weekend? Happy Monday. xo.
