This DIY convertible jumpsuit is especially perfect for vacations, travel, etc. since you get so many different outfits in one. But the absolute best part of all- the most incredible thing about this project…….. is that you can make it in less than 30 minutes.
Today’s DIY convertible jumpsuit is a super-simple clothing refashion using some basic slacks that you already have. If you don’t have any basic pants you are itching to transform, I’ve got you covered. Here are several great options at less than $20 from ASOS

How To Make A DIY Convertible Jumpsuit:
Start out by laying your ITY Fabric out flat on a table. I have been using this particular brand for years. Fold your fabric in half length-wise to cut 2 separate 11″ x 2 yard strips of fabric.
Now, take the 11″ side of one strip and pin it to the outside band of your slacks. If you have any questions, check out the 2 minute video tutorial below!
Pin the other strip to the other side of your slacks the same way. Make sure you are not interfering with any buttons or closures your slacks may have.
Use a standard straight stitch on your sewing machine to attach the strips of your pants and you are done! Th ITY Knit Fabric won’t fray so there is no need to hem any raw edges.
Now wasn’t that easy?
