You can omit the straps and keep it strapless, you can also leave the hem flowy and not add the elastic at the hem. You can skip the faux ruffle and just make the top using a 1 1/4″ fold at the top for the elastic casing instead. Once you start to make the top you will better understand how easy it is to make the changes I listed above.
Enjoy and please make sure to email me pics when you guys are done or post on my FB wall!!
