I get so giddy when I find a piece as unusual as this one. It gets my heart all aflutter! When I saw it on the rack at my favorite 1$ thrift store, I thought it was just a long dress…but behold!
That’s no dress, my friends! That’s one groovy jumpsuit from the days of disco. Whether you’re a mother, or whether you’re a lover…I’m sure you agree it needs a major overhaul! 🙂
First, I cut along the inseam of the pants legs, all the way up through the crotch. Usually, I would use a seam ripper for this, but since there really wasn’t much of a seam to speak of, it didn’t make a difference.
You’ll want to make sure you undo the crotch part, otherwise you’ll end up with a weird bunchy-crotched skirt. 🙂
I put the jumpsuit on my dress form inside-out, and pinned a straight line down the front and the back.
Then, I ran each side through my machine. 🙂
So now I have a really long dress. I cut off the excess material from where I converted the pants to a skirt, and then took off some of that length.
I rolled up the sleeves (because I think I might end up liking them as-is down the road), and headed off to Karaoke night! 🙂
I hope you like this refashion, but more importantly, do you like my new ‘do? I’m trying to experiment with different ways of styling it as I grow it out. This is my first time curling it. Is it working? Should I just keep it straight? Should I just shave it all off again? I really have no idea what to do with my hair…ever. 🙂
To complete my outfit, I donned my oh-so-chic PBR can earrings. 😉
