How to Upcycle a Jumpsuit
See how I turned a jumpsuit into these 3, very fashionable pieces:
1) A jacket
This is what the jumpsuit looked like..
To convert the jumpsuit, I used the lining and the tulle from this 90's skirt. (I kept the pretty outer shell to make another DIY very soon!). I also had some leftover lace- which I used to embellish the cuffs of the top part, as well as, on the pants, where you slide through the belt.
here are the steps:
1- Chop the jumpsuit in half!
2- remove tulle and lining from the skirt
3- add to the bottom of the jacket by sewing together
4- use some lace to embellish the sleeve cuffs and pants
5- Use remaining tulle, some lace, a button- to create a collar
6- I changed all buttons to give it a fancier look
Please note: I did all the sewing by hand. It's totally doable and super easy. But, if you do use a sewing machine, the time spent on this will be close to only 30 minutes!!
Next: what will I make with what’s left of that 90’s skirt! Stay tuned!
Enjoyed the project?
- Tulle, lining (Old 90’s skirt)
- Lace 1 meter or less (Had it)

I love how creative this is! Such a twist on the original.
Someone wore the jump-skirt in public ? Interesting idea.
