I found this silk caftan YEARS ago and just let it hang in my closet. I've always had plans to turn it into a kimono, but when I lucked up on FLOOR SEATS (section A! mind you) to the On The Run tour I had to snip it into shape for the perfect concert fit.
Paired my reseam kimono with my high-waisted vintage Levi cut offs, reseamed sweater crop top, and Steve Madden wooden sandals (the most comfy pair in my closet).

Floor seat wrist bands and hands.
Removing the sequins was the quickest part of the process. When de-glimmering your vintage find the string that holds it all together and pull. Unravels like butta!
I cut this up the middle after drawing a straight line with chalk. I still stick to measurements before I cut anything to CUT down on mistakes (see what I did there).
Lastly, snipped off this detail of the original garment and created a new seam.
