Can you shrink tights? My child just got her tights for todays recital. The teacher didnt have her size at rehersal and always waits until the last possible minute. She just gave me a pair of balera large child. Well my six year old weighs 50 pounds and is tiny usually wears a IC. At leat they are footless. They are way too long but I guarentee they will work for at leat 3 or 4 years. Show is at 5:30. Do you think I could shrink them somehow???????????? We have footed and conversion tights but the teacher said nope she has to wear these... HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make the teacher adjust them then! Bring a pair of scissors just in case the teacher needs to cut them off.

They probably won't run. DD cuts her older tights to be thigh length regularly with no issues. Sometimes makes warm ups out of them too (cut out the crotch for the neck, the legs become arms)

Could you post a picture of the warmups version of what to do with old tights?  I'm usually pretty good at visualizing, but I am not seeing it.  (or perhaps describe what happens to the waistband?

Also, I am curious about when she wears thigh length tights?

Thanks for good ideas about how to repurpose old tights!

It's been 2 days, we are dieing to know how it turned out. My advise would have been to see about switching it with another dancer who's tights were too small
