My thrifted 80s suit refashion + how to replace a trouser zip

I’d been on the hunt for a funky retro suit for a while so when I saw this checkered beauty in an online vintage shop I just had to snap it up:


Whoa! Those shoulder pads are insane, the fit of the jacket is, erm, questionable and the trousers were in need of a new zipper, whew!


An awesome result! Head on over here and take a peek at the tute behind my thrifted 80s suit refashion + how to replace a trouser zip.

I love the shorter cap-ish sleeve on the after. Very nice!

I'd go for both: suit AND contents (despite the fact that you've 'stolen' my pink socks ?) :-D !!!
