Clowning Around...

Hi Everyone!

I'm loving the sunshine!! Everything feels so much... lighter... including this jumpsuit, now I've finished with it...

Before!

You can see from my face I'm unimpressed, and no - I didn't style my hair to match the 'clowning around' theme, that's just how it dries naturally, thank-you very much!

It's my first time turning trousers into a skirt (the lower half), so I was feeling around a bit... thankfully there was lots of fabric to play around with, and I can still make more changes should I feel it's not right in future...

Gotta love a hat.
For the whole refashioning story, to see this dress front-on, and to let me know how you might've done this differently, check out the blog post! Thanks for visiting!

Big hug x
Gema

p.s. Here's the Before & After...

Thanks Jennifer! It's a bit long (if I'm not wearing heels)- but I'm hoping to get plenty of summer wear out of it :)

Thanks Debbie! It's perfect lightweight cotton for hot days, and the drape's great for hiding imperfections! :)
