WE’RE all feeling the pinch at the moment.
With the rising costs of food and energy bills some of us are making sacrifices in other areas.
Clothes shopping, although it could be seen as a necessity can really bite into your funds if you get carried away.
New and inventive ways of making clothes last are growing popular everyday.
Including thrifting and mending our own clothes.
But once a garment is too small for you it can be difficult to make use of it.
One TikToker has shared her quick skirt transformation online.
