Wannabe Wednesday: Johnny Was Edition

Wannabe Wednesday: Michelle Mason(ish) Edition
A No-Sew Sweater for Douglas!

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:

NM-41F6_mx
That’ll be $107 (on sale from $215!).
Comfy!
Comfy!

Sadly, the closest thing I had in my refash stash was this:

Awesome, no?
Awesome, no?

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.

Farewell, pads!
Farewell, pads!
Buh-bye weirdo tie thingies!

Chop x 3!
Chop x 3!

I hemmed that bottom raw edge…

Pin!
Pin!
Hemmmmm!
Hemmmmm!

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.

See?
See?

After pressing my new tunic, I was ready for a lovely (though chilly) day off!

I do so love a warm fire!  :)

Here’s a closer look at my new top!

Pretty, no?
Pretty, no?

As I hate being cold, this is about as close as I got to playing in the snow:

Snow is cold, y'all!
Snow is cold, y’all!

But I enjoyed looking at it from inside while sipping on a few of these:

Mmmmmm!  White Russians!  :)
Mmmmmm! White Russians! 🙂

I think my new top is an alright copycat!  🙂

Cheers!
