I'm always sad in the fall when I have to put my summer clothes away for the year. My sundresses I can safely stash away knowing I'm going to see and wear them again in the spring, but sometimes there are trendier pieces that I really like, but don't know if I'm going to be able to use again next summer. This romper was one of those!
Click through for more details on how I refashioned my romper (it's so easy you'll be pulling your summer clothes back out, I promise) and cost breakdown of my thrifted outfit!
This DIY was really the easiest DIY ever: I cut the shorts portion off the romper. I know, I know, it feels like cheating. I kind of felt like it was cheating when I decided to try it out and it worked so well! the fabric did fray a bit, for this lacey romper that looks totally fine. But if you're worried about making this look cleaner and more professional you can always sew a quick hem. Or if your romper is made of a knit fabric, just let it roll because it won't fray!
