As you can see the bodice is extremely tiny ... way too small to contain me but I still liked the border printed, light wieght, cotton fabric. And there is lace trim along the bottom for a nice girly touch. And it is fully lined so there is no annoying show-through in the sun. I decided to redo the dress as a skirt as the band under the bodice was close to my waist size. It was a simple change. I removed the bodice, shortened the side zipper and added a closure at the waist band. I kept the tie belt at the same length which ties around my waist about three times. I may remove it later so I can wear a t-shirt without having to tuck it into the waistband but I am keeping my options open.
BTW - everything at Steve and Barry's these days is priced at $8.98 per item so this little skirt cost me less than $10.00 and about twenty minutes at the sewing machine. Not a bad deal.
