My husband was understandably confused when he came home the other day and I was sitting in front of my sewing machine. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I don’t sew much. But I have had a couple project idea’s floating around and since it’s getting warmer there was one that I really was excited to try.
Several weeks ago I saw a Muumuu refashion project. Yep, a muumuu. And it was really cute! I have many memories of my grandmother wearing her muumuu’s around the house. I was pretty sure she had several, but when we were going through her closet I could only find this purple one. But I liked the detail around the neckline so I thought I’d give it a try.
Here it is hanging up (inside out because I had already started pinning it). I ended up taking it in around 12 inches or so. Less around the arms but a lot around the middle.
I’m thinking I’d like to practice some embroidery stitches by adding a little border around the bottom. What do you think?
This is so cute!! Love it.

Embroider away! I think it would be a really personalized touch and a neat way to remember your loved one.
That’s pretty cool. I never would have thought to do something like that.
it looks great Julie! Kristie
