Cloudy Easter Caftan

Helluu MuuMuu!
Happy St. Pat's!

When I found this comfy caftan at the thrift store next door to my office (Yes…you read that right!), I was thrilled! Look at that embroidery!

Sometimes I manage to contain my enthusiasm very well.

I saw two options with this one. I could keep the sleeves and make it a mini, or chop off the sleeves, and turn it into to nicely-fitted maxi dress.

I thought and thought about about it, and at the end of the day I just couldn’t bear to lose those fantastic embroidered sleeves. So, a chop happened:

Chop!
Chop!

A hem quickly followed.

A very small hem, as I went a lil short with this one...

A quick press was all it took to complete my super-comfy frock for an Ice Cream & Waffles Brunch with friends. :)

Still comfy!
