DIY: Leopard print jumpsuit to playsuit

This is the jumpsuit I bought at Goodwill on my birthday. I wasn't sure I was going to bring it home because of a noticeable sun spot on the pant leg. It was on the lower part of the leg so I knew I could make cropped or capri pants. After I chopped the damaged part, the cropped length made me look really short so I just kept cutting a bit at a time. Ended up in short shorts zone. Absolutely not for the playground, my friends.
Sunglasses - Edge I Wear (thrifted)
Jumpsuit - Studio I (thrifted)
Red wedge sandals - Enzo Angolini (thrifted)

A closer look


Closer look at wolf bracelet. Look at the little tongue?


These are the before pictures.

You can see the spot in the mirror a little bit.

I think the yellow jumpsuit will end up with similar treatment. Stay tuned...

What do you think?

That is a beautiful find, My mom, my sister and i used to go thrifting at a store where everything was sold for a dollar but they stopped it:(. I love the way you paired the Jumpsuit!

I can't see the spot in the picture, but by turning it into shorts, you changed the outfit girl! I love it and you look HAUTE!

You look amazing! Is this the leopard jumpsuit that you mentioned in your comment on my blog, You Like It? I Made It!? It is so pretty. It was so nice as a jumpsuit but you definitely showed that it is lovelier as a playsuit. I totally love what you did with it. ;) Tres sexy! You go girl! ;)

I love it! And the fact that it isn't as limited as pants .. You can switch it up even more with tights, boots, pumps, belts....

Love the way V was hamming it up! :) Great redux with the jumpsuit-to-shorts transition, too. Wish I had sewing ability. I have nearly destroyed, to the point of needing a rescue, anything I've ever tried to sew.
