I have to say, I normally get very intimidated when it comes to projects that involve sewing. I tend to steer away from them, but after my hunt for different ways to customize your clothes, I am really quite inspired! Most of these are very easy, in fact, a lot of them don’t even require a needle or thread; just a few creative folds, knots, and cuts. I’m anxious to go through my closet and see what I can make out of some of my old things. My husband may also be missing a few shirts once I’m done, but I doubt he’ll notice. Maybe you’ll find inspiration with these clever ways to refashion your clothes.
1. The 8 Second Shirt To Skirt
You won’t believe how easy this is! Now you can use those long sleeve winter tops during the summer as a cute skirt with a bow. It really is quite flattering, too!
2. Add Lace To Your Cut-Offs
This easy sewing project adds a feminine and unique touch to just about any pair of jean shorts. Bonus: You can slightly alter the shorts in the process to make them a bit larger in the thigh area if needed.
3. Add Lace Sleeves To A Tank Top
With a little bit of lace trim and your handy needle and thread, you can turn a basic spaghetti strap tank into a stylish lace top. No sewing machine required!
