Helluu MuuMuu!

From 3 to 1
Cloudy Easter Caftan

Hi!

A lot of you have been wondering what I’ve been up to and where I’ve been. First off, I apologize for making some of you worry.

I’ve been adulting, my friends. I have been doing some seriously hardcore adulting lately. :)

You see, I’m in the process of buying my first house! I’ve been super busy with house hunting, and really haven’t had time for much else. I can’t say much, as nothing is final yet, but I hope to have some really exciting news for you all very very soon. :)

In the meantime, I still need to de-stress, and nothing helps me relax and unwind quite like a fun refashion.

However, my sewing room was a mess! You can read more about how I dealt with it .

Now…back to the refashioning!

Well, Heluu MuuMuu!
Well, Heluu MuuMuu!

Ah! I so love a comfy muumuu. However, even a casual evening with friends should never be quite that casual.

I grabbed my seam ripper and took it to those sleeves.

Pick. Pick. Pick.
Pick. Pick. Pick.

This was taking forever, as they were triple-stitched in. As I was in a hurry, I only unpicked the tops of the sleeves, and then cut out the rest. I serged the raw edges and pinned everything under.

I <3 my serger.

I stitched the armholes down, then took in the sides.

Farewell, sweet pocket!
Farewell, sweet pocket!

After the sides were taken in, I tried my new frock on and quickly realized how rusty I’ve gotten at refashioning. This was not going to work. I looked about 7 months pregnant. :/

But I wasn’t about to give up. I hacked off the bottom…

Buh-bye!
Buh-bye!

Then, I gave it a new hem.

Whirrrr!
Whirrrr!

And now I have a fun 70’s-style peasant top!

Complete with bellbottom jeans!

My fellas and I enjoyed a couple of local brews and tasty noms at .

Say hi, fellas!
Say hi, fellas!

So, I’m sorry I’ve been so woefully absent, but I promise to not be such of a stranger now.

I will also accept offers of physical labor for those of you who’d like to help me move next month.

Just kidding. That could get weird. ;)

Whether they realize it or not, these guys are about to be my moving crew. :D
