MuuMuu Magic


Behold, the beauty of this pattern:

How could I resist? When I saw this dress in my friend Aimee's (Aimee of Vint Condition) etsy store, Vint Condition Style, I fell in lurve.  I held my breath, hoping it would fit!  When I tried it on, it met all the qualifications:  I could get it over my body and the snaps at the wrists could snap.  It was mine.  But it had an elastic waist, which just hit me wrong.  Luckily, changing this is within my seamstress skills. With waist ripped the dress was revealed in its true muumuu glory - though either the maker or the previous owner darted it in the front and back of the top, which somehow keeps it down to pup tent shape!  So I belted!



Vintage Dress, $50, from Vint Condition Style, but free to me as my mother-in-law got me a gift certificate from the Planned Parenthood auction in October; sweater, J. Crew; belt, thrifted!
