So far on my blog, my first refashion has garnered the most amount of views and I’m happy to finally post my next one! Today’s refashion is this giant 2X muumuu that I found at Value Village. I loved the flowery print and wanted to make it into a cute summery dress. And in it’s current state, you can see it’s not there yet.
First, I put it on my bust form and took in the sides about 3 inches each. Once pinned, I gave it a good chop off the sides. And yes, there is duct tape on my bust form. Why you ask? Because I made it myself! How? Well you’ll just have to wait for that blog post.
Don’t have a bust form? You can put it on inside out and pin it while on you or measure how much needs to be chopped from the sides, lay it down and pin from there. Lots of options!
Sew up the sides, arm holes and fold the bottom hem twice and sew – and a brand new dress! Well not exactly brand new, but it is to me and I’m giving it a new life.
I’m sticking to the one arm chop off look. However, I did the opposite arm so you can see it’s just my poor posing/boyfriend’s photography technique.
