10 Days to Go: Leanne's NDAD Creation

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.

New Dress A Day - DIY - Muumuu - Before

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!
