So I found this HUGE mumu at the thrift store this weekend and decided to rescue it.
Before:


After:



And....


Plus you can wear this skirt as a strapless top!

(I admit, its kinda cheating to say its the third look!) Sorry for the unfocused picture!  Undecided

I basically cut the mumu in half and then hemmed and added shirring like crazy! The reconstruction for both pieces took me less than 3 hours total.

Thanks for looking!

That's awesome! If I had found that mumu, though....I probably would have just kept it as it was (if it had fit me)....just because i'm weird like that and like the before best. But I really like what you did to it too!

ETA: I bookmarked this for inspiration. TY!
