I call this one a Ki-Miumiu…..Kimono meets Miumiu.

This bright blue miumiu was gorgeous with its bright pink and white flowers.  I loved it all…but it needed an update….er…upcycle!

 

I used a white t-shirt with a pretty crocheted trim for the bodice of this dress.  The pink t-shirt I used as the middle can barely be seen in this photo but its underneath the blue belt.  Because this piece turned out very asian inspired, it looked like a kimono, I needed and found a wide obi belt tutorial here and created a beautiful obi belt from the fabric in the Tigers in the Grass post.
