I love muumuus! 🙂
They’re lightweight, comfy, and come in some pretty amazing colors & prints!
The only drawback is you really can’t wear them out in public. Well…not without a little refashioning, that is!
This $1 thrifted muumuu is about to get big makeover with the help of this scrap of fabric I found at the $1 a Pound Goodwill (a terrific place to find fabric, btw!).
But first, I needed to take it in a good bit.
Alright! Now for that scrap!
I laid out my scrap, folded it over to be the same length as the bottom hem of the dress, and then cut it accordingly. I intentionally cut it way longer than necessary so I could get the length perfect after I attached it.
The idea is, I just wanted to add on to the bottom and leave a side slit (so I could walk).
I attached the fabric to the bottom of the dress…
…Then I sewed it on with some fun teal thread!
I tried my dress on, marked my desired length with a safety pin, and chopped of the extra fabric. All that was left to do was finish off those raw edges!
Check that muumuu now! 🙂
I styled it with one of my fave vintage thrifted belts, some huge shades, a lovely bangle a friend gave me that says “Live with passion.”, and some plain old flip flops. 🙂
Of course, I wasn’t alone!
