Brrrrrrr! This winter has been ridiculously over-the-top cold here in SC! When we finally got a bit of snow for the first time in three years, I knew I wanted something comfy and cozy to lounge around in for a Snow Day with friends. :)
I wished I had something like one of these lovely tunics by Johnny Was:
Sadly, the closest thing I had in my refash stash was this:
That red is great, the beaded neckline is gorgeous, and I loved the pintucks/pleats on the front of this piece. All those details are very similar to the boho details of the Johnny Was tunics, but it wasn’t quite there yet.
A few chops were necessary.
I hemmed that bottom raw edge…
I decided to go with the 3/4 sleeves of the bottom tunic. I rolled the bottoms into 1″ cuffs, pressed them, the stitched them down on the bottom seam.
After pressing my new tunic, I was ready for a lovely (though chilly) day off!
Here’s a closer look at my new top!
As I hate being cold, this is about as close as I got to playing in the snow:
But I enjoyed looking at it from inside while sipping on a few of these:
I think my new top is an alright copycat! :)
