One in a melon

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.  ;)
