This jumpsuit belonged to my mother and she was more than happy to get it out of her closet, as she hadn't worn it in many many many years. It had so much fabric to it that I couldn't help but want to use it for everything and a half!


Self explanatory: Before


The skirt, very simple. Tube of fabric, hemmed.


The top: A sweetheart neckline halter top.


The faux dress: I just combined the top and skirt to create a dress to wear for my halloween costume last year. (Although I plan on wearing it to other places as well!)

This jumpsuit recon has been one of my favourites. It was all over very simple and although I've gotten the most wear out of the shirt, both pieces are versatile. I have a few more pieces I'm supposed to work on, but I am quite the procrastinator so we'll see when I get around to another recon.

Wow you took one seriously bad jumpsuit (and I am not picking on THAT jumpsuit, all jumpsuits are terrible!) and transformed it into an adorable outfit! You look so cute in both pieces.

Why were jumpsuits ever made for fashion? You had to get naked just to go pee!

The jumpsuit is adorable. I have been wanting to try making a sweetheart neckline for a while, you may have just given me the push I needed. Nice work Cheesy

You sure got a lot of mileage out of that jumpsuit! Separates that work well together as well!  You look great in those and you did a wonderful job!  Hope to see a lot more from you!
