Hawaiian Muumuu to Ruffle Shift Dress Refashion

Refashions are one of my favorite things to make. I found this ginormous Hawaiian muumuu at the GW Clearance Center for pennies on the dollar. To make a refashion happen, it helps to pick out something with a ton of fabric. It’s always easy to cut away fabric, but much […]
