Not meaning to be rude – but are you serious? If your friend really wants to get married in a jumpsuit (!) then l suggest she goes looking for one, and not waste her time attempting to turn billowing tulle into trouser legs.

You’d need to just cut off the bottom and have a jumpsuit bottom custom made. With that in no d, you’re paying for a skirt you’re not using and a whole other bottom half that’s going to have to be bespoke. Since your friend is getting custom work anyone, it would work out way cheaper to find an etsy seamstress who can custom make a whole jumpsuit incorporating a similar bodice.

I mean I guess someone could chop the bodice off and attach it to a new jumpsuit bottom… would be a very expensive and convoluted way to do it though! Probably cheaper to just get it custom made from the start, or she could look at doing a top/bodysuit and pants separates.

I agree that custom is the way to go. Sure, there would be enough (more than enough) fabric in that dress to make pants, but why would a person buy a DRESS when they wanted a jumpsuit? She would essentially be paying for two outfits – paying once for the dress and then paying as much or more to have the bottom made into pants. It makes no sense. She needs to find somewhere to have it made.

Why would she just not seek out a custom designer to have one made from scratch?

callmelately :  Have to agree with the others that there’s little point in buying a dress just to make it into a jumpsuit.

Besides, since the top and the bottom would be different materials (you wouldn’t want to have beaded pants as they’d be impractical/uncomfortable), she might as well get separates anyway.
