Jumpsuit Refashion from Frumpy Floral Dress

We're well into fall in northern California but it's still warm enough to put our summer clothes to good use. I've been meaning to make a summery jumpsuit for a while and when I saw this dress at the thrift store, I knew it would make the perfect jumpsuit.

I used a store bought pattern but had to make a modification to the bottom as the skirt was just a little short on fabric.  I used a pair of pajama bottoms as my pattern.  It was my first time copying a ready to wear garment, but it was super easy.

You can read all about how to refashion a dress into a jumpsuit at my blog Trevor Loves Mommy.  Thanks for reading.  Melissa

Welcome to the refashion community! I wish I could pull off the jumpsuit look but I'm too short. :) You pull it off with ease and grace. Great refashion. Look forward to more!
