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.
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.
Then, I snipped off the side belt loops.
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!
Then, I gave that bottom raw edge a new hem!
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! :)
I’m a big fan of kimono jackets, so I was pretty stoked to be able to make my own for a measly dollar! :)
Fun times were had…
…and much booze was consumed.
Then, some fireworks were brought out.
Stay tuned today for some exciting news of what to expect from SlipsKnute.net in 2013! I’ve decided it’s exciting enough to merit its very own post! :)
