Reusing your old clothes….
Sometimes you still like those old clothes but you just feel like you’ve had enough. Maybe you don’t have to get rid of those clothes that you’re so fond of especially if they’re still in really good condition. You can re-create those old clothes again and make them feel brand new again.
Here are some creative ways of re-making and re-purposing your old clothes:
Long Sleeve To Short Sleeve
Something as simple as shortening the sleeve of your old clothes can give them a new look. That now boring shirt or dress can be transformed in to something more hip or fun to wear just by shortening the sleeves or even making it sleeveless.
Scarf To Wrap Skirt
If you can’t do it on your own, you can get someone with the tailoring skills to convert that scarf into a wrap skirt. Now you don’t have to let go of that your favourite scarf; you just get to wear it differently.

Try this with that white shirt, or something else that comes in plain colours. You can add ruffles to your shirt from cut off sleeves or material from another old clothing and before you know it, you have a brand new shirt.
Sweater To Cardigan
