Yoga pants to jumpsuit aka drab to fab

Hello there fellow refashionistas! I am really happy to share quite a discovery in the refashion sphere... I have found a way to transform a drab piece which is one of the most common thing we all hide in our closets and enjoy its comfort - I give you the yoga pants!


As you can see, these became somewhat saggy since I lost some weight, and wearing them required constant pulling up, which completely annulled the whole comfort thing. Between thinking where to add elastic to these, so they could stay up, a sudden revelation hit me - why wouldn't I transform them rather then fix them? Oh, humble yoga pants - I see you future as a jumpsuit! The hottest fashion item this season!

Some seam unpicking, restitching, cutting, a piece of scrap lace and I got myself a heavenly comfortable and fabulous piece for warm summer evenings. Dear ladies, I give you the used-to-be-yoga-pants jumpsuit:


I described the process HERE how I did it, but I wouldn't go as far to call it a tutorial. I hope this inspires you to turn some of your yoga pants in summer-friendly jumpsuits.

Happy refashioning!

You look amazing in the jumpsuit! Awesome job! I'm too short to wear one but you look great!

I too have foreseen the future of a certain pair of thrifted pants being made into a jumpsuit (but with shorts) and I'm so impressed with your outcome! Great description of your creative process in your blog post...love to hear how you bypassed hurdles with creative solutions!
