It’s everything you want in a DIY! Quick, easy and CHEAP! A few easy snips, and you have a versatile top for spring and summer!
What you’ll need:
Cut open the toes!
Cut out a small “U” or “V” from the crouch of the tights. It will stretch when you put it on so keep this in mind and alter based on how big you want your neckline.
You know that old trick you used to stop a run in your tights? Well its the same thing you will do next to prevent any huge runs in the fabric. A few are ok it adds character and a nice deconstructed quality.
I ran clear polish around the sleeve hem and neckline.
As an after thought I realized I could have used black polish (or any color that would match your tights of choice.) Also FABRC GLUE! Duh, it dries clear and will do the same job. 🙂
As a disclaimer the clear polish kind of flaked on the tights when it was stretched, so my future ones I will use fabric glue or the colored polish. You live and ya learn though right??
See how the neckline stretched out? 🙂 Also my black tights are a “one size fits all” and my blue ones are a “queen” size. I prefer the queen size, the top ended up being longer, the sleeves were longer and there was more room to breath! 🙂 So the lesson is, the bigger the better.
So whip out some old tights or buy some new ones and give it a go. Leopard would be fun or tights with fun patterns! You can rock this top over, under or layered for endless style combinations 🙂
