No-Sew House Coat Refashion!

I found this sweet aqua, bandana print housecoat at a thrift store while on vacation.  I loved the fabric at first glance and knew I wanted to do something with it.  I tried it on and realized that this might be my quickest refashion yet.  I figured all it needed was a belt, rolled sleeves, and some accessories.

I could have went through the effort of cutting it at the waist, taking in the bodice, reattaching the skirt, etc.  But, my wide elastic belt did all of that work for me!

I accessorized with a black and white beaded necklace, beaded bracelet, and black heels.
So simple!
