I wore this sundress for my college graduation (4 years ago now, yikes!). I was really thrilled to find out it fits me again, but I was not thrilled with how short it was in back... so now it's a top!

Just a simple cut and hem situation. It tapers to be slightly lower in the back (mullet/hi-lo hem?). I made straps out of the leftovers to give it a fun retro pin-up girl kind of look.

Now I just need to find a boy to buy me an ice-cream soda down at the drugstore...
