When I found this $1 jumper at the thrift shop, I thought it might be fine as-is. But when I tried it on, I noticed something.
Do you remember how I said this jumpsuit gave me a case of camel toe that rivaled the Prancercise Lady’s? Well…we have a NEW winner! :/ There’s no way in hades I’m going out in public while wearing this thing…not as-is anywho!
I grabbed my scissors and started cutting! First, I snipped off those tiny ruffly things from the front of the jumper.
Then, I cut the seams from the crotchal region of the jumpsuit, like so:
Almost done! 🙂 I pinned the cut-up crotch part to make a straight line with what would end up being my new top.
I stitched each side down…
…then chopped off the excess material with my pinking shears. since the original hem of the former shorts lined up perfectly, I didn’t have to stitch a new one. 🙂
I tossed on my new top, and headed off to a movie night with friends!
Our film du jour was this bit of Simon Peg/Nick Frost awesomeness!
You’re probably wondering why I’m holding the head of one of our former presidents on my hand. For some delightful reason, our host had a few laying out for our enjoyment (and confusion).
Of course, masks are always fun!
As some of you who know, I’m going off the sauce for a couple of weeks. This was Day 1.
I have good & healthy reasons for giving my beloved booze a break. But as you can see, I’m still fully capable of being interesting & weird without it. 😉
