I’m not sure if you know this about me, but I have a value village/thrift shop addiction. It overlaps with my terrible impulse control, which means I buy a lot of clothes without a second thought and then… I end up donating them again. It somewhat defeats the purpose of saving money when you’re essentially just buying clothes and then giving them back for free a few months later for value village to sell again…
After just having moved homes (and downgrading my closet size…) I decided to do my bi-monthly closet cleanout! I came across a T-shirt that I had gotten from Value Village about 4 months ago. It was just a plain white T shirt, which I bought because I figured that everyone should have a plain white T-shirt in their closet.. What I didn’t take into account was the way it fit me.
Just as I started to place the T-shirt in the donation pile… I decided that maybe it would fit better if I cropped it! I don’t have much experience hemming or cropping clothing, so I decided to take a good old pair of kitchen scissors and attempt to make the T-shirt into a cropped tank top that I would likely wear more often.
The lines were a little shaky, but I changed it into a crop top and it fits soo much better with more of my outfits.. and honestly.. I kind of like the shaky cut! It’s kind of a rugged style that goes well with black high waisted jeans and boots!
