Repurposing (Upcycled) Fashion Clothing: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Repurposing (Upcycled) Fashion Clothing: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I’m not really sure why I hated these pants. They don’t seem too bad in the photo.

A little RIT dye will take care of these ugly pants:

Here they are taking a bath.

At this point, I’m lazy so I don’t want to swish around the pants in the water anymore, so I decide to put them into my washing machine and let the machine take care of the details. After washing and then drying the pants, I added some sparkle with fabric spray-on glitter. Totally funky! Here’s my daughter Lex striking a pose for me.

You can’t see the glitter too well in this picture.  It’s very subtle, but they are fab for the family holiday party that we’re headed off to.  They say that paint is the cheapest way to change the look of a room. I guess that goes for pants, too!

My face cloth (that I wiped down the sides of my washing machine) got a make over as well.

The pants were a great success at the party. Even Mr. Monkey agrees.

It just proves one fashion diva’s adage. Glitter makes every article of clothing better.
