Day 111: MuuMuu Madness!

Day 112: Fall Flowers Top
Day 110: Nightgown Top

Over the past year and a half, I have learned to love the MuuMuu.  🙂  It may sound nutty, but hidden in each and every MuuMuu is a cute and extremely comfortable dress!  When I snagged this one for $1, I knew it would make a lovely little dress in no time!  🙂

Uno Pocket-o!

Making a MuuMuu into a dress is one of the easiest things in the world.  All you need is a pair of fabric scissors! 🙂

Now you have everything you need to make a simple MuuMuu dress.  Just tie the sash around your waist, and pull some of the material through.  Now you’re good to go!  🙂
