Recently my daughter found these tights and wanted to wear them, but... they are defiantly to small for her. She had gotten tall lately! But... the feet fit her ok so I came up with this idea.
I laid them flat and snipped off the feet above the knees.
Then I Zig Zagged the edges and sort of stretched the sock as I fed it through. I went around twice to secure it and to make sure you could see the cute green thread a little better.
See... it ruffles the top down!
Here they are done and on her! Without the waist part the slouch A TON more than usual, but... now the are socks so they don't have to stay up!
