Repurpose Your Clothing For a Cheap Thrill

Repurposing is a great way to turn old clothes into something new, and still get that new clothes thrill for a fraction of the cost of buying new clothes.

Go through the back of your closet and pull out anything you haven't worn for a year. Pick out the quality pieces and let your imagination run wild about what you could turn it into. 

With a little effort t-shirts can become tank tops, jeans and pants can become shorts, and dresses can even become great tops. Embellishing pieces can be a really fun project as well, choose some great beads and start threading it on to any piece you love to spice it up. The options are endless, so let your inner creative genius have fun with it. 

Before you cut, draw out a template with chalk and then try the garment on again to help you imagine what it will look like.
