Hey Craftsters! This is my first topic here, and I come pleading for help. Today at Marshall's I got a pair of Juicy Coture sweater tights for $3, only, instead of being a women's large, they were a girls large. I tried them on anyways and the only problem is that they are too short. I was thinking maybe sewing some elastic in them and cutting the top part off so they'd just be thigh highs but I"m not sure if they would unravel.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could keep them from raveling or some other nifty thing to do with them? Unfortunately I can't take them back because of the sale. They're lusciously soft and a Rayon/Polyester/Spandex mix.

Sorry for the bad lighting photos Dx my point and click hates me. Also, sorry they have to be in links. It won't let me post pictures yet.

Thanks for any help/suggestions you can offer!

Check this out, girlfrannn. I think it'll help you out.

I used this method for a pair of tights that had a compromising crotch hole and it worked swimmingly.
