Sunset Beach Dress

the disappearance of the sun
below the western horizon...

This dress was an upcycle, I found this beautiful Sunset t-shirt & old sundress in a bag of clothes from a friend that was destined for Goodwill.  I loved the colors together, the ocean blue combined with the sunset rays.... just like watching the sunset over the ocean.  

I removed the sleeves and part of the back of the t-shirt and added ruffled straps.
An elastic waist and drawstring made from part of the leftover t-shirt.
The perfect comfortable summer dress.. kinda bummed I have to give it back!
I went to some garagesales this morning and found this awesome clothing display rack! Only $8, perfect for storing & displaying my newest creations!  Now if I can just find a dress form for sewing.. my future craft/sewing room will be ready to go!! :)
