Do you want too know a little secret? This 'so-called' playsuit didn't exactly begin life as a playsuit... It started off as a dress, living it's simple dress life in New Look, then relocating to my wardrobe where it would hang neglected and unworn for around 3 years.
I decided I didn't like the fact it was a dress. I don't know why. Maybe it was the way it hung. But the print in the oh so vibrant colours, and the off the shoulder style has always stood out to me. So I thought it would be a good idea too try and up-cycle it into a playsuit; something that you would imagine too be quite easy. Wouldn't you? Ha. The YouTube tutorials said differently...
They all involved cutting the dress apart into shorts, and lots and sewing... Lots of sewing. Ain't nobody got time for that! Instead, I just sewed bits of the dress together to make the join where it would be in a pair of shorts. It literally took two minutes. Simples! I know it would probably look better if I did it properly, but I really couldn't be bothered.
Just one more thing. I couldn't not get on board with the whole fringing trend. I bought this leather jacket years ago off of eBay for like a tenner, and thought this would be a good outfit to throw it over the top of.
What do you think of up-cycling old dresses into playsuits? Would you do it the proper way, or would you be lazy and do it like I did?
