another refashioned dress… er… robe! this creation started out life as a vintage robe I picked up at the thrift store recently. I loved the colors, but what was I going to do with a robe?! (I tend to be a yoga pants and tshirt gal.) I decided that it was also too pretty to just shove away in my box of “gorgeous, but impractical” vintage, so I refashioned it!
the adjustments weren’t that radical: snipping 15" off the hem, hand hemming, shortening the sleeves (and reattaching the original, stripy cuffs), and sewing a snap here and there to keep everything in place. and look: new dress in under two hours!!!
the second image shows the original robe, before my scissors got to it. ;)
