When I spotted this Sincere Sally jumpsuit online, it was love at first shop. Cinched waist, floral print, tied ankles = heaven. When it arrived however, it was definitely made for a much taller person. Enter stage left: DIY downsizing – the BFF of every petite fashionista.
I ran it up to my local alterations place, and had them shorten the leg length to fit my 5’3″ frame, and when I got it back, I took the self-fabric belt and cut it in half. I repurposed said belt as an additional leg-cinching device, by wrapping it around from the knee down. This created a more slimline silhouette which suited my smaller frame better.
I also added a vintage Oroton gold and pearl pin that I found (thrifted from the Red Cross) at the decolletage, to make it a little less sassy and cleavage-bearing. Now my only problem is that moment when I actually have to peel off my entire outfit so I can pee!
What’s the most creative fashion solution you’ve come up with? I’d love to know. Leave me a comment.
