My mum was given a few sized 22 muumuus by a friend, lets just say she didn't like them. So she gave them to me. i love the fabric/print and just had to make them into something wearable.
I used Vogue 8184 pattern for this. (i do not like boning, if anyone knows a good tut or videos on boning i love to see it)

This is what i started with

this is with the boning

and this it what i have now.

I cannot wait till summer so i can wear it out!!

Lovely! Fantastic transformation.

Open to personal swaps, especially for fiber or spinning related tools!

I love doing that - taking huge dresses and giving them a whole new lease on life! *cheaper than buying a brand one in a shop, that's for sure!* I hope you get a chance to wear it out because it is super cute! Good work!! Cheesy -x-

That's all there is and there ain't no more....
I craft, therefore I am.

The style isn't a favourite, but the IDEA is!
