Refashioning Circus Wear


Sometimes I find things while thrifting that  I just simply, cannot pass up. This is a perfect example of one of those things, can you believe someone donated this? Ok, yes, at first glance, it looks like a costume for the elephant trainer at the circus, but after a few snips here, and new seams there, it looks like a completely different outfit..


What I did:
Shortened the pants
Removed the half jacket
Took it in on the sides


A little less circus, a little more..sailor? I’m not sure, originally I was going to turn it into a dress (shocking, i know), but I decided to be a little different this time and keep it as shorts. After putting it on, I realized I had actually created a romper – something I never thought I would wear (they just seem really hard to pull off)



Yesterday Paul and I went on a 7 mile bike ride to find new spots to take pictures for the blog (yes, I finally got a new bike!). We mostly stayed on the trail, but when we ventured off a little we found some pretty awesome scenery..


Can you believe this is the first refashion post I’ve done in  a month?! Moving and starting my new job kept me pretty busy but I’m definitely ready to get back into it, expect more and more refashions in the coming weeks 🙂_1100201
