Leanne got her hands on a muumuu!!! I had to share this one with everybody stat.
I’ve been following your blog for a while, and have been super inspired by all the recreations! Since things have been winding down at the end of grad school, I’ve found a little more free time to try out some of my own recreations. I’ve also found that my creative juices, which were piled under homework, are now starting to resurface! So, I went shopping at a local thrift store and found this beauty for less than $4.
I loved the print, and it reminded me of the many hideous nightgowns/robes you have fabulously remade, so I decided to give it a go.
I love the print too, Leanne!! I would have for sure snagged this piece as well. Let’s see how she transformed it!
I loved that it had a pocket (yes, only one), so I shortened it, took off the sleeves, and made it a fun, fresh dress just in time for this RIDICULOUS Southern California heat (yuck!).
I also made a belt/sash and a wrist band/bracelet with the remaining material.
Thank you Marisa for your continued inspiration!!! I look forward to more great recreations.”
Girl, you are rocking this piece!! I love, love, love this and I love that you repurposed the leftover material right away by making a bracelet and using the extra as your belt! Woo!! I think you’ll be able to wear this for a while still because the lovely Southern California weather is still pretending that it’s July. We’ll wear our muumuu remakes together!
