My family's Venice trip was to catch a cruise around the Mediterranean. One of our stops was in Athens, Greece where I wore a dress I altered to work for the summer.

Ancient ally ways...
Strolling around the Acropolis.  
Removed the dress sleeves. Shortened the bottom. Turned the extra material into a belt for the dress. Sorry no pic of the belt, next time I wear it I'll snap a pic from the pack.
I altered this dress in January even though it was meant for warmer weather.
 Guess I had the winter blues. lol.
