DIY ~ Alexander Wang SweatjeanJumpsuit




I knew right away when I saw the new collection, that some of the pieces could be very easily recreated. This piece was my favorite and therefore became my next project. I had a pair of baggy light wash Calvin Klein men's jeans which I wore once and never again, and I desperately wanted to turn the jeans into some sick high waisted jeans anyway, so it was perfect. I got just enough denim from the baggy legs to put together some straps and two larger pieces for the front and the back, added a stud on each strap and Voila! Alexander Wang in no time.

Also, some iron on transfer paper arrived in the mail, which possessed me to crop one of my favorite plain white tees and add a peace sign print to it. All in all a very successful DIY, phew!

Sexy!

Lurving how you turned the pants into overalls! I've been wishing to come across a light wash well fitting pair of short overalls on my thrifting adventures. Big dreams, I know :)
