Makeover Monday: Creamy Cotton

Hi Friends,
     Just sharing a super simple makeover for today's Makeover Monday post!  Though this dress was really gorgeous at the longer length as well, it is made of a heavier cotton so the length made it a bit bulky.  Now it is the perfect length for any summer event.  Anyone else loving anything white or cream colored right now?  I am packing for my trip home to New Jersey this week and I think I have three white dresses packed so far!
Outfit Details: Dress - vintage, for sale in shop here! //  Wedges - Bandalino, thrifted //  
Flower Crown - DIY

     This weekend was wonderfully warm here in Colorado.  We had a great picnic along a mountain creek yesterday complete with my first sunburn of the year.  Now I am just counting down the work days until I leave for NJ! Three to go!

  3. I think given the dropped waist, the shorter version is far more modern than the longer version. Great makeover.

  5. Oooh, I really adore that dress! Man, if dropped waists looks any amount of good on me, I'd steal that from you, ehehe!~ I especially love the buttons on it, and those tiny pleats. What a treasure you fixed up!

    Picnic on a mountain sounds lovely. Sunburn, not so much, but we all must make sacrifices, no? ;)

  14. Hooray for Monday makeovers! It's amazing what a little hemming to a dress can do to completely change a piece and make it modern. I have a pile sitting in my sewing room that are in dire need of a hem and I have been far to been...and er, lazy to get to them. Loving the babydoll silhouette on you lady :-)

    A mountain creek picnic sounds divine! Safe travels to New Jersey! What part does your family in live in?

    1. Thanks Marisa! My family lives in central Jersey on the shore *insert fist pump* - Just kidding about the last part! It's a teeny town called Ocean Grove. its adorable I think you would love it there! :)

    2. I know exactly where that is...and I LOVE that little town! I was at a little concert there before - reminded me a bit of Cape May, but even more charming in my opinion. Next time you are in the area - please let me know ahead of time and I would love to meet up. It's only about an hr. and a half away from my family's house in Philly, where I spend a lot of time at - I would make the drive to Ocean Grove in a heartbeat :-)

  15. it's amazing how the smallest little changes can completely make over an item of clothing, this dress is so cute now that you've fixed it up! i really wish i could sew and do things like this with all the half-awesome-half-gross clothes i find and make them just plain awesome.

  17. I seriously love this series- it's so fun to see how just a little bit of hemming can change a whole dress. And i LOVED how you made a vintage shirt into a crop top last week- that opened my eyes to a whole lot of fun alterations ;)

    Also, I got both of your comments haha (the more from hannah the better), and i've always liked moving, too! except the whole packing stuff into boxes bit- i always feel like just throwing everything out and starting over, ugh. have you always lived in Colorado?

    1. Thanks girl! Haha whoops with the double comments! I actually moved out here after I graduated school 3 years ago! I grew up in New Jersey, then went to school in Pennsylvania, then studied abroad in Mexico, then transferred to go to school in New Jersey again, so I am no stranger to moves! My current place is also the 4th place I lived since moving to Colorado haha!

  18. I love the new length, you look so cute in it with the floral crown :) I think cream is such a pretty color for Spring and Summer. What are you doing in New Jersey? Sounds fun!
