Poolside Blog Tour: Day Two

Welcome back to day two of the Poolside Blog Tour.  The temperature is soaring and so is the cute fashion on this blog tour!!!  Don't forget to enter to win the GRAND PRIZE sponsored by Boho Fabrics!!!
Today we have 2 blog stops for you to visit, and I'm showing off my 'Tank Hack' of the Magnolia!
Laura of Custom Made by Laura is showing off a killer summer outfit of  the Endless Summer Shorts paired with the Tidewater Tee.
Althea of So Today I Did A Thing also made the Endless Summer Shorts with some amazing trim, completely swoon worthy!
---------------------------------
And I decided I needed more dresses - becasue when it is hot I can't be bothered to have to think about matching two pieces of clothing together and dresses save my fried brain.  So would you like a Magnolia Tank Dress (or top)???  It is so easy!!!
Grab your Magnolia pattern, and your Trendy Tank pattern (that one is FREE if you don't already have it).  Just trace the armscye from the tank onto your Magnolia pattern and then use the armscye band lengths from the Trendy Tank.  DONE!  I made this one with the straight above knee hem and headed to the pool right after taking these shots.  This gorgeous Rayon Knit is of course from the amazing Boho Fabrics.  So light and comfy on this 98 degree day.
I mean, come on - could there be an easier summer hack???  Go make one or one hundred and live up summer in style!!!
