While we were visiting, my aunt mentioned her love for thrift stores and you know me.. it was all peaches and cream from there. We made a day of thrift store shopping and even ventured into a crappy little store where I'm sure death lurked around the corner from the filth.. but we will save my detailed description of that adventure for another post. -- At the local Goodwill, I found two dresses that I just knew I wanted to refashion & starting with the "great white muumuu" as I call it was my first thing to tackle.
(You'll have to excuse the messy house as always & my mismatched socks.. because who has time to mate them up & the fact that my head is missing.. My three year old is still learning his camera techniques!)
Okay so long over sized muumuu in all it's glory got it's arms chopped off.. (which I"m going to attempt to make some pants for my daughter from.. we will see how that one goes.) And then the length was shortened. I'm just not a maxi dress kind of girl.
