Make that Derby DRESSES!!!

Soo... I've been having 'refashion-envy' of my girl Antoinette since I found her blog... and being so inspired, I decided to try my hand at it this morning.

Now, for any of you familiar with the CleverGirl, you will know that what I have done is little more than child's play... But, I am rather proud of myself, thank you very much!


I took this mumu that I thought had a very nice print and decided to make a strapless summer dress.

It was super simple, since all it really took was cutting off the sleeves and shoulders then adding a simple encased elastic around the top.

I think it came out pretty cute... for an hour's work anyway.
Cute enough to wear to the second day of Derby I think...




Holla!

Edit:.... I just added a review on PatternReview.com
