I spent the weekend in Palm Springs with girlfriends, so I felt that this muumuu had to make the trip along with me. When in Palm Springs, you muumuu it, right?
Check back later today to see the full remake, but here’s a little photo booth teaser
My muumuu was a total hit and so were the other vintage flowy pieces I brought along with. The desert wardrobe is coming this week!
Natalie is my kind of girl. Let’s just discuss for a second…
- Refashioning is one of her favorite things to do. (Samesies!)
- One of her first project was making little pillows (Samesies!)
- Thinking outside the box and crafting something old into something new. (Samesies!)
When I saw her project I just knew we were destined to be refashioning pals. See what she created…
I’ve been a fan of your blog for a while now, and I’ve had a love for sewing since my mom taught me to make little pillows with a needle and thread. I’ve since upgraded to a machine, and refashioning thrift store clothing is one of my favorite hobbies. Is it because I’m cheap? Yes. Is it because I like thinking outside the box and recycling something old into something new? Yes.
I found this lovely denim-ish button down dress at a Goodwill in Festus for $2.25.
My friend’s expression explains how we felt about it initially.
Best. Expression. Ever. See what Natalie did to this denim number…
You guys, summer is over and you know what that means… long sleeves are back in action!!
It’s still pretty warm out, however I’m already in fall/winter planning mode. I saw a fun sweater on Awkward (worn by Molly Tarlov) that was by Topshop and I got the DIY urge to recreate.
The Topshop inspiration piece had a glitzy neckline…
…so I knew this would and could be a fun and easy DIY!
