Gauchos Reconstructed from Adult Overall Jumper

I had an old jumper dress (size adult L) styled like overalls at the top that I paid a good price for years ago from LL Bean. I hadn't worn it in years (too teacher looking) so I decided I had to use this high quality denim for something wonderful. I used pattern Simplicity 4206 http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=4206 to make some size 6 pants for my daughter to wear to school -- she's already worn them several times and they are about as comfortable as could be.

I didn't take a photo of my old jumper before so I took a photo of what was left! I am waiting for inspiration of what to do with the top -- maybe a purse, maybe an apron...We'll see what I come up with!

What a great idea! And I think the jumper left-overs would make a great purse!
