I’m not big into DIY projects. Anytime I have tried to do something crafty, it never turns out how I want it to. As I went through my closet, I found a pair of old leggings that I had no plans on wearing again. I was disappointed as I didn’t want to donate them. That’s when I turned to Pinterest for ideas. I found a video of how to turn an old pair of leggings into a crop top and I figured I had nothing to lose. I was planning on donating these leggings, so if I ended up ruining them, oh well. I’m so happy with how this turned out!
To turn my leggings into a crop top, all you need to do is cut out the crotch of the leggings. That’s it! I was in disbelief that there was no sewing involved. After following the video, I tried the new crop top on. I can’t believe this worked! I showed my husband what I did and he thought it was a legitimate shirt. The one caveat is this shirt is cropped. The shirt ends about an inch or two below my bra. As someone who has been consistently insecure with showing my stomach, I’m needing to go through my closet to find a pair of high-waisted pants to wear with the shirt.
Overall, I’m pleased with how this turned out. I never thought I could turn my leggings into something else I could wear.
