I cut the dress in half and made the kimono from the skirt. I followed Leanne Barlow's tutorial here that we've all seen all over pinterest :)
It's an easy tutorial. The most novice and advanced seamstresses alike can follow this.
A year after I made this kimono, I wore it for a photo shoot with my photographer Nedra Hollingsworth.
I wish she could do ALL my "After" shots :)
I still wear this kimono on a regular basis. I just love it so much. In fact, this was one of the refashions I used as my "audition" to get into Refashion Runway 3 last summer.

Happy Throw Back Thursday!
