DIY Fashion: Turn old sweatpants from boring to cute!

DIY Fashion: Skinny Sweatpants

Who says you can’t be comfy and look cute at the same time? These cozy, skinny sweatpants are my kinds of DIY fashion tutorial!

I wrote about the skinny sweatpants tutorial from Cotton and Curls over at our sister site, Feelgood Style, and I thought I’d be remiss if I didn’t share it with you guys, too! It’s kind of the perfect project for a lazy Sunday, isn’t it? Alter a frumpy pair of sweatpants, then lounge for the rest of the day in DIY fashion style!

This tutorial tells you how to make skinny sweatpants with a sweet ruched detail on the legs, but when I tested it out I skipped the ruching in favor of more coverage, because it’s freaking cold in my house. If any of you guys do the ruching part, I would love to hear how it worked for you!

Get the deets about this tutorial and the variations I used below!
