I have been meaning to do this post for so long, because I have finally finished altering my vintage handmade jumpsuit i got from a charity shop. This beauty cost me £3 from a charity shop and I discovered it was handmade and hand sewn and finished in some parts. Although it was huge and kinda ridiculous I couldn't leave it, and its shoulder pads, behind!
So this is what it looked like before I changed it: (awful photo in many ways, sorry!)
And here's what it looked like after:
Breezie wanted to join in
(watch - Marc by Marc Jacobs, heels - Office sale, ring - craft fayre)
Here's what I did:
- Removed shoulder pads and moved shoulders inwards
- Tightened waist elastic
- Took legs in and rolled up
- Changed buttons from light blue (?) to lilac
- Rolled up sleeves
I love this jumpsuit so much!! I think it would work on a night out with heels or in the day with white low converse.
I think I love the scallop detail along the pockets and the neckline the most.
Let me know what you think, and I hope you like how the blog is shaping out so far.
I bought a vintage size 16 dress today for my next project. Cant wait to do something with it :)
