Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

3 years ago I decided to try the Kirsten Kimono tee, and I made a dress based on the pattern.
The dress was OK and I wore it a few times, but it was overall fairly light being made up of black, white and pale pink stripes.
I overdyed it with a burgundy colour, which did not dye the black or white, but turned the pale pink into a deep rich burgundy. I liked it better but it still did not get worn very much.

I thought I would wear a t shirt more than the dress, so I shortened it and added sleeves cut from the lower section of the skirt.
A fairly successful refashion!

Looks great! What a clever re-use of the print. You should start sewing patterns in bright colors :-)
