Welcome 2013!!!!

SlipsKnute 2013!!!
Christmas Time in ReFashionland!

Happy New Year, Everybody!!!!!!!  :)  I can’t think of a better way to start 2013 than with a fun refashion, can you?

2012 has been an awesome one for me.  Challenges were overcome, and loads of exciting things happened.  Time to ring out the old/ring in the new in style!

I began with this $1 thrifted silk robe whose sash had gone MIA.

Mmmmmnnn!  Silk!
Mmmmmnnn! Silk!

Looks comfy, doesn’t it?  Unfortunately, I can’t just wander into a party wearing my jammies, so some work was needed!

First, I stitched down the pockets and snipped them off.

You’ll see why in just a sec!

Then, I snipped off the side belt loops.

Snip!
Snip!

Then, I made a big chop, leaving the front longer than the back.  This is why I had to do away with the pockets, as I had to cut right across where they used to be!

Chop!
Chop!

Then, I gave that bottom raw edge a new hem!

Whirrrrrr!
Whirrrrrr!

I gave my luxe new jacket a quick press, and frolicked out the door to meet up with my nearest and dearest for a fun New Year’s Eve celebration!  :)

Ta-Da!
Ta-Da!

I’m a big fan of kimono jackets, so I was pretty stoked to be able to make my own for a measly dollar!  :)

Feelin' fancy!
