No-Sew Aquatic Muumuu to Dress Refashion

As I began getting ready for a friend’s birthday party, I realized at the last minute I had nothing to wear!  I was already running late, and had to act FAST!

Fortunately, I had this little numba right here:

Like I said, I had no time for this refashion.  I almost didn’t bother with photographing it as I was running that late! Buuuuut…I think it’s important to show that a refashion doesn’t have to be a lengthy process every time.  Sometimes a quick fix will do quite nicely!

I noticed there was a small run at the bottom of my future dress.

Hmmmnnnn….What to do?

So, I  grabbed my scissors and made a quick chop to get rid of it!

Chop it!

I thought the sleeves could use a little shortness as well!

Since this fabric is of the polyester non-fraying variety, I didn’t even mess with hems.  I just grabbed that bottom scrap, tied it around my waist, and headed to the party!  🙂

Look! I’m tall!

Of course, I forgot it was a pool party!  Don’t worry, I still got in the water!

No diving allowed!

But, I was jealous of everyone who remembered to bring their bathing suits.  :/

My new dress kept me cool with its shortened length!

The hat doesn’t hurt, either!

Methinks the Birthday Girl had a great time as well!
