Bring Pink Back A Decade (or three) Later!

So I have this giant mumu from the 70's or the 80's. I can't really tell with this one. The print is very pink and kinda cute. Maybe. My vote is still out on if its cute or not. I figured I would see what I could do with it before sending it off to the donation bag in my garage.

Eeeeeek!

I cut off more than half the length, cut off a lot on each side and snipped off the sleeves. Then I sewed all that up. Kinda like this:

Pin

Fold and Snip

More Snip!
I ended up with this:

Im still not feeling it!
So Im not in love with this refashion, but I figure at least it has a better chance at finding a new home once I donate it!

Brilliant job - congrats!

;-) yet, please tell me 'skinny herring': what are you going to do with the 'other half' (= leftover bit) of this former oversize :-D ?

My oh my this 'former pic' looks cute with you 'hiding' in this 'heap of material' ;-)

LG, Gerlinde

O.k.: accepting the thrown shoe after me cheeky critter and '1/2 sorry' for being cheeky = birth-defect = 'disability-passport-entitlement' due to this ;-) ? Hmm, should have a try ;-) :-D

I love the pink plaid-ish pattern, and you did a fabulous job bringing it back to life. I would definitely keep this one, if I were you!
