I posted this tip on my Instagram stories and had so many people say it was something they never thought of that I thought I should post here too.
My daughters love leggings. Heck, I love leggings! so I hate when my kids get a hole in their leggings from falling or just general mucking about especially if they are the more expensive character ones that they love. Or even when the length gets too short and they are neither 3/4 lengths or long leggings but still fit them aroud the waist, I hate having to throw them out.
So now instead of throwing the leggings out; that are perfect other than a hole or short length, I cut them! Snip snip!
By cutting them I make them into short leggings and they are just PERFECT for under skirts and leggings for that extra bit of coverage and warmth. So they can still go running about, climbing trees and riding their bikes without care.
