Wannabe Wednesday: Johnny Was Edition

Wannabe Wednesday: Michelle Mason(ish) Edition
A No-Sew Sweater for Douglas!

Brrrrrrr!  This winter has been ridiculously over-the-top cold here in SC!  When we finally got a bit of snow for the first time in three years, I knew I wanted something comfy and cozy to lounge around in for a Snow Day with friends.  :)

I wished I had something like one of these lovely tunics by :

Comfy!

Sadly, the closest thing I had in my refash stash was this:

Awesome, no?

That red is great, the beaded neckline is gorgeous, and I loved the pintucks/pleats on the front of this piece.  All those details are very similar to the boho details of the Johnny Was tunics, but it wasn’t quite there yet.

A few chops were necessary.

Farewell, pads!
Buh-bye weirdo tie thingies!
Chop x 3!

I hemmed that bottom raw edge…

Pin!
Hemmmmm!

I decided to go with the 3/4 sleeves of the bottom tunic.  I rolled the bottoms into 1″ cuffs, pressed them, the stitched them down on the bottom seam.

See?

After pressing my new tunic, I was ready for a lovely (though chilly) day off!

I do so love a warm fire! :)

Here’s a closer look at my new top!

Pretty, no?

As I hate being cold, this is about as close as I got to playing in the snow:

Snow is cold, y’all!

But I enjoyed looking at it from inside while sipping on a few of these:

Mmmmmm! White Russians! :)

I think my new top is an alright copycat!  :)

Cheers!
