One of the most gratifying things about being a DIY-er is knowing you can turn something seemingly ugly into something fancy with a little imagination. I don't have the patience needed to endure shopping during sale season, but the excitement of possibly stumbling upon a fixer-upper makes me do it every time. The sweet, addictive taste of self-satisfaction I get at the end of a good diy is what made me go into H&M at peak time and purchase this unfortunate looking H&M jumpsuit (no shade if you own it, beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc).
step 1. Unpicked the sleeves because I didn't like them.
Step 2. Pinned down what was left of the sleeves. 
Step 3. Took in the legs for a more tapered fit and sewed everything I'd pinned.
Step 4. I ironed the jumpsuit, I tried on the jumpsuit and I gloated over how great it turned out.
