When I bought these plush overalls the pants were long and loose and the straps were far too long for my short torso. I thought it would make a great little jumper with a few minor adjustments, so I hemmed the pant legs into shorts and moved the buttons on the straps to suit a petite person. Voila!

I do like this look, even if it is a bit French mime-meets-English Butler-meets-Court Jester. I prefer to think of it as Coco Chanel-meets-Alexa Chung-meets-Annie Hall :) I kind of felt strange wearing this to work, which is why it took so long for me to do it (I fixed the overalls a couple of weeks ago), along with the fact that I knew K would make fun of me. And make fun he did, but I poo-pooed that. Thanks to Nicole for doing it first and making me feel a little bit less scared :)
