It seems like kids tights are are always in need of replacement. Between runs, holes, and stains, they tend to make it through about one wear—two if you’re lucky—and then they’re so unsightly that they’re relegated to the bottom of the drawer. It seems like the knees, heals, and toes are always the first to go, so Nike over at Choose to Thrive came up with a way to keep the top of the tights intact while using adult knee socks to fashion durable replacements for those pesky worn out areas. In her girls tights tutorial, she shows you how to turn your kids’ blown out tights into fancy new leg-wear with minimal sewing skills and a pair of adult knee socks.
