As noted in my post last week, I found a cute maxi dress that came with a little bit of an issue.

Unfortunately the dress didn’t come in tall. So the issue I ran in to was, a maxi dress that was about 3 inches too short. Because of the modest price point, I purchased two of them. Why would I do something so odd? So that I could take 4 inches off the second dress and attach it to the bottom of the first one.

The end result, it turned out perfectly. A maxi dress on a 5 foot, 10 inch girl that just barely sweeps the floor…as a maxi should.

Naturally I wore it while away over this 4th of July weekend.  

 I love rugby stripes, so this is my dream casual maxi dress.

 Now one is above the knee and the other is gold length. Thanks Siobhan. Your suggestion to do the triple wrap was brilliant!  IMG_0469 Now this is the perfect length. (Tall girl problems) Cardigan: Vineyard Vines (old)
