Wait til You See how I Wore this Mumu Dress
One of the most fun gains from learning to sew is that it has given me options. When I see how garments are constructed, it gives me new ideas or chances to take a few risks. For example, the difference between a sundress and a skirt is not that big. Especially in the case of the Angel Mini Dress from Show Me Your Mumu. I just loved this "spicy tomato" print when I saw it - and I loved the style of dress, but I new it was going to be too short for most things.
I could wear it as a cover-up or at the beach, but not so much in my everyday life. I decided to grab it anyway and use it when I could. When I received it, an idea hit me - wear it as a skirt for everyday. So, that's what I did and I loved every minute of it. It is so fun and I'm so glad I got it. It also gave me the idea to make a similar dress, but in a longer version for around town. I've already finished it and I love it. I'll share a few pictures soon.
It has also given me the idea of designing a dress/skirt that would give us options - wear as a dress or a skirt or a cover-up. One piece with lots of choices. Always a win in my book.
