That's right. Those old clothes from the closet could be made into new styles of clothes. Although, you have to be artistic and creative to do it. With the help of accessories those old clothes could appear elegant too.

You got a point Simplyd. Accessories are the key to give a total different look to your cloth. For example, adding a nice belt can change the whole look of an outfit.

Correct! Belts could be worn as it is or it could be worn loosely on the hips. Also , even a colorful scarf can enhance the way a dress looks. And a scarf could be worn in different ways too. It could also be worn as a belt , or a an accessory to a big bag too. It only takes a little artistic imagination.

Also the shoes make a big difference in an outfit. If You wear a mini skirt with tennis you can go sport, but with high heels is more casual. Jewelery and makeup can also make the difference.

Is no so hard. I remember when I was living with my parents and sisters. We used to alter our old cloth sometimes. Like make a fashion t-shirt or cut some pants. It was very fun. And this is the same thing she does. Are not big changes but she revives the cloth. So, if you like this maybe you can start practice now. :)

Hi jameygc That sounds like a great idea. There are so many cloths in all of our closets just taking space. We can actually turn some of them into summer handbags to match some cute outfits.

Yes! It is a great idea! This lady, she has a huge space with thousands of pieces of all kinds. And the changes she make are not big you know, maybe something like cut the sleeves or make a long dress short. Things like that. She has important customers and everything. Is really cool.

Recently I have been seeing many tutorials about making use of those used clothes. I have made a tot bag of an old t-shirt too. I have also seen tutorials of making yarn and hairband from old t-shirt, I am going to make them when I have time later. It's so fun and knowing that we can re-use the things is really good.
