Chances are you’ve got an old pair of leggings somewhere in the closet that you just fell out of love with. Here’s how to upcycle them into new apparel with a few simple steps!
Handimania shows you how simple it is to turn them into a crop top with a single cut! First, take the leggings and lay them out on a flat surface.
Fold The Leggings
Carefully fold over one leg so it perfectly lines up with the other.
Identify Where To Cut
Identify a rough semi-circle at the crotch of the leggings.
Cut Out The Crotch
Following the semi-circle you traced, cut out the crotch of the leggings.
Believe it or not, that’s all there is to it! Slip on the leggings putting your arms through the leg holes and you’ve got a brand new crop top!
Want the shirt to stop shorter on the torso or shorter sleeves? Just trim the cuffs or waist of the leggings.
