True fact: the summer that I was pregnant with Lila, I consumed roughly 25 watermelons. It was summer 2009. The sun was shining, I was in school taking classes about interiorscape, American humanities, and journalism respectfully and sadly retaining hardly a thing because I had serious pregnancy brain. But they were good times and I was happy. Mainly because I knew I wouldn't have to take any math classes for the rest of my life. I would waddle home, kick the shoes off my swollen feet, cut a watermelon in half, grab a spoon and dig in. Literally. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was all watermelon.
So it's no surprise that this girl is a lover of all things watermelon.
And she's the most graceful watermelon eater I've ever seen. Really. She doesn't get a drop on her.
She may get her love of watermelon from me, but her cleanliness is all from her father.
Anyway, all that to tell you about this dress. A simple Geranium dress hack. I lengthened the skirt to be a maxi dress. That simple.
I sewed a 4T bodice and added a little trim to the front.
A summer dress, perfect for eating watermelon....if you're a non-dripper like Lila, that is. ;)
