She Starts Cutting Into Her Old Leggings. When She’s Finished It’s STUNNING

Do you have an old pair of leggings that you never wear anymore, or don’t fit into? Clear up some closet space, but instead of tossing anything out, try getting creative and give those tired pants a style upgrade! All you need is a pair of scissors and a few strategic cuts to transform your leggings into a cute new crop top shirt. YouTube’s Handimania channel has an excellent DIY tutorial that shows you how to easily do exactly that, and it’s impossible to mess this one up. Don’t worry about having to sew or glue anything, there is none of that. In under a minute’s worth of time you’ll be all done, so be sure to check this out and try it later. Plus, who doesn’t want a shirt that’s basically free, in style, looks great on, and that you can say you made all by yourself!

The first step is to lay out the leggings on a flat surface and fold them in half the long way, so that one leg overlaps the other and rests directly on top of it. Make sure you smooth out the fabric as evenly as possible and then grab a pair of sharp scissors. In one hand, pinch the seams where they meet in the crotch area and pull the fabric tight. Begin to cut with your other hand, starting from about an inch or so below where you are pinching. Cut out a half-circle shape, which will become the neckline for the top. It can be further cut and adjusted so that you get the desired fit you’re looking for. When you put your new shirt on be aware that the legs are now the sleeves and the waistline is now the bottom part of the shirt.

This fashion trick is the perfect way to up-cycle and reuse leggings that no longer fit, or to revamp ones that you love but wore way too much. It actually looks great too and it’s super quick and easy. Just make sure to cut both sides of the pants evenly so that the neck line isn’t off or irregular. That’s all there is to it, you only need to make one cut and there is no reason why you shouldn’t try this today!
