I thought turning tights into a top with a few swift cuts was a well known technique. At least it is for ballerina’s (and ex-ballerinas!) to give a little extra warmth to your arms as well as your legs. After posting this picture on Instagram last week, it has been so very fun to answer direct messages to those who were asking for instructions with ‘Cut open the crutch’. Be sure to cut right next to the middle seam to avoid runs. Don’t make the slit too large – 8 cm is about enough as the tights will stretch a lot. Don’t forget to slice off the feet as well. Voila – instant sheer layering piece!
