Altering and embellishing denim projects are always some of my favorites. I love the idea of adding fun fabric to the waste band of jeans or shorts to make them unique. Plus it is a great way to use up those scraps of fabric I have laying around.
Now this is a photo filled with amazingly dressed women and there are really countless DIY ideas to be taken away from this. However, the one that stands out to me the most is probably also the simplest. I am in love with the cropped turtleneck tank top on the far right. Granted, I don't think I have ever worn a turtleneck before in my life, but if I am going to start this is the way to do it. All I need to do is find a turtleneck at my local thrift store, cut it, and hem it.
Turn an old blazer into a skirt. There are always thousands of old blazers at thrift stores just waiting to be turned into great DIY projects. With the buttons up the front you wouldn't even need to worry about sewing in a zipper, just cut, hem, and take in the sides so that it fits you properly.
