Lately, I’ve been looking for long, loose dresses at the thrift store to turn into jumpsuits. I snip the skirt down the middle, halfway up the length of the skirt, then I sew up each pant leg. Though it may not be as figure flattering, I love loose silhouettes because they’re so comfy, and I feel good in them. This one reminds me of the Rachel Comey Costello jumpsuit, but much more friendly to my wallet.
what i’m wearing: dress, thrifted and altered (similar here). clogs, maguba. basket, vintage (similar here).

I know. I think about all the long dresses I’ve passed on and I could have been turning them into jumpsuits long ago.
haha yeah! finally got around to this, so simple and a major improvement on something i had, thanks for the inspiration! i can’t wait till it’s warm enough to wear it here in nyc, here’s a pic https://www.pinterest.com/pin/495888608956763706/
I can imagine you’re itching for the warm weather with the snow fall you just got. I love the pattern on the dress! Isn’t great how a little change can infuse new life into something?
I totally love this! 🙂
I love this, but wondering how do you get into the jumpsuit? 🙂
I’ve thought about doing this and have been perplexed about getting in and out of it…
Good question! This dress happen to have buttons on both shoulders, so it was overall-ish, so I just unbutton that way. I have turned other ones into a jumpsuits by cutting into the back to turn it into a back loop and key hole opening. That way with this, I can unbutton when I need to take it on and off and it fits over my bottom when bottom when putting it on. I’ll share another one I turned into a jumpsuit and take a picture of the back.
Ahhh…. Yes! That makes sense. Too bad my sewing skills are not quite that advanced… I would love a picture of the back of the jumpsuit with the key hole opening! Thanks for sharing!!!
I will be sure to share it!
