Sometimes a girl just wants to throw on a one piece and call it a day. This pattern is perfect for those days. If you sew, you can probably tell from the package this pattern has been around for a while, so I think its a classic at this point. lol Which is understandable, because I see myself making one of these every summer. I like making view D or E only because I like my arms covered. I made the one below in a rayon material so its very lightweight, machine washable, and just overall easy to wear. I’ve been wearing this particular jumpsuit for 2 summers now and its finally getting a little to small 🙁 so I’m getting all the wear out of it I can before I have to give it away.
Shopping at the thrift store and revamping clothing is one of my favorite things to do! I’m all about recycling and recreating fashions! So, I saw this robe at the thrift store and thought it was really pretty and had potential. I took the zipper and the lapel off, sewed the front so it stays open, and sewed the sleeves a little smaller so I could roll them up. I’m in love with this robe now! It’s really long and lightweight, pretty much perfect for spring or summer. I think pairing it with all white really makes it pop. Now you know vintage robes make perfect kimonos!
