Give Your Leggings A New Life With One Cut


All you need is an old pair of leggings (preferably one with an amazing pattern) and a pair of scissors to make the transformation.

Begin by laying out the leggings on a flat surface and smoothing out.

Next, fold the leggings; one leg should go on top of the other, as if you’re about to fold them to put away. Make sure they’re completely lined up, so it looks like there’s only one leg of fabric.

Then you’ll want to take your scissors and make the cut that changes everything. There should be a point sticking out from your leggings; it will be the fabric in between where the two legs meet. You’re going to cut it completely off.

In a semi-circle cut, snip off that part of the fabric,  trying to make the circle as evenly round as you can. If you want to trace this shape before you cut, you certainly can, but if you’re a steady hand you can just go ahead and make the cut without guidance.

And that is it!

The legs of the leggings will turn into the arms of your crop top and the cut you made in between the legs becomes you neckline. If you want a rounded neckline, make a rounded cut, but if you prefer a V-neck, make a triangle cut instead. Either way, this trick only take a minute or two of your time and will leave you with an awesome new top to wear out!
