Breathe new life into an old motorcycle jacket or denim jacket by removing the sleeves.
Take an old pair of jeans and cut the hem so they hit just above the ankle. To avoid error, first try them on. Second, using a pen, make a mark just above your foot. Finally, cut and try them on again. When you’re satisfied with the length, throw them in the wash and they will emerge with the perfect frayed hemline.
Hem only the lining of an old lace or eyelet skirt so that the lower portion becomes see-through and you can achieve that peek-a-boo look.
Swap out the laces on your sneakers for fresh white ones, and you'll be surprised at what a difference it makes in brightening up your outfit.
You know that colorful dress you've worn so many times that it dominates your Instagram profile? Have your tailor cut it into a crop top and skirt that you can wear together or separately with other pieces.
