The kid version…
When I found that gray robe at the pile sale for $1, I knew immediately that it was going to make for the perfect redo.
Since it came belt less, I snipped off both belt loops that fell by my hips. I'm going to work out a new belt situation, but I'm definitely not going to go that low.
I cut off about a foot of fabric from the bottom of the robe...
...and then trimmed myself a strip of the excess. This was going to be my new belt!
After the length was tweaked, I went to taking in my sleeves and also stitched under the gray trim that was edging the robe. I'm making this into a wrap top so instead of cutting the trim off, I just folded it under and sewed!
Now to recreate those hearts, I took some excess fabric I had and trimmed away. Folded fabric in half and cut a longish C from it. I unfolded the fabric and voila, insta-heart!
I did the same with some white fabric and pinned the two hearts in place before hand stitching them in place.
Once my top was complete, I threw on my comfy jeans (I mean it is casual Friday!!) and my sandals and literally had something that I may or may not just sleep in tonight!!
Such an easy tweak if you've got an old robe that's ready to be tossed. You can make it totally wearable without anyone really having a clue that it came from Nordstrom (that's where mine came from...)
I loved those hearts, especially the satin ones because they were the shiniest. Of course, I'm going with the shiniest one.
My top garnered comments at the office and it was as if I rolled into work wearing pajamas. Cozy and comfy...the perfect way to ring in the weekend!!
TGIF! Happy weekend friends
