I love Tuesday’s because it’s the day I get to share even more refashion ideas with you! Today, we’re going to refashion a long sleeve top from a pair of basic leggings. I’m so excited about this project because it legitimately takes less than 30 minutes to complete and looks awesome! I plan on wearing this shirt as an athletic top with high-waisted legging when the weather cools, as a layering top under bulky knits this winter, and under overalls or high-waisted shorts this fall.
I don’t think you would ever believe me if you only say the “after” picture but check out the two minute DIY video below to see the full tutorial. When I initially showed Jon what I made he didn’t believe that I was able to refashion a long sleeve top from a pair of my old leggings!
