I don’t care if this piece was originally really expensive and on-trend. It looks ridiculous!
Not only is this jumpsuit one of the dumbest-looking things I’ve seen, it also had a mangled zipper.
There’s an extremely expensive boutique here in Columbia that donates their damaged stuff to Revente’s Last Call. Kudos to them for not just destroying the stuff. 🙂
However, I wasn’t a fan of this jumpsuit. As you can see in the photo above, it looks pretty silly on me.
Anywho…I needed turn this jumpsuit into a fun party dress STAT!
Time was of the essence!
To get started, I made a nice, big chop!
Then, I put my new dress on my dress form, and got to work.
I took it in on the side where the broken zipper was, thus eliminating the need for it altogether.
Technically, I should have just put in a new zipper, but alas! I was already running late to a really fun party! 🙂
While doing this, I had to be careful. If I made the dress too fitted, I wouldn’t be able to get in or out of it.
I had to get it just right.
Luckily, I’m pretty bendy and can wriggle my way into just about anything (thank you yoga!)! 🙂
I ran the pinned side through my machine, and cut off the excess material, completely removing the broken zipper.
I made a quickie sash from one of the discarded legs, and was ready to go! 🙂
I think this dress is a huge improvement over that silly jumpsuit! 🙂
Oh…and check out my daring footwear!
I really have to admit…I have some extremely fun friends! 🙂
