DIY Two-piece ensemble from an old jumpsuit

You want to know what to do with an old strapless jumpsuit?

Hello Lovelies,
I've been seeing ensembles of two-pieces everywhere lately. I've had this blue light strapless jumpsuit for 3 years now, and I never wore it before, so I decided to turn it into shorts. Since I had leftover of the top, I decided to use it to make a faux-pocket by measuring where I wanted the pocket to be. Then I cut a piece from the clothe that I glued (E6000) to the t-shirt. I put a small cardboard inside the t-shirt behind the pocket so the glue wouldn't stick the front of the t-shirt to the back of the t-shirt. I put two heavy books on top of the pocket and left them on there for two hours. Et Voilà! You have a two-piece ensemble, perfect for the Summer.

[Wearing]: Zara closed toe strappy sandals (here) | Blue strapless jumpsuit (similar here) | White t-shirt | Accessories: Tyler Rodan black handbag, Rayban wayfarer sunglasses, H&M hat, H&M jewelry, Gold chain necklace (gift), Chanel brooch (gift), L'Oreal pink nail polish.

Have an A-W-E-Some weekend!

what a smart use for an item of clothing you bought but didn't wear! I should think about DIYing my old stuff more often--I usually just end up giving it away.
