If you love digging through piles of clothes in ukay-ukay shops in search of hidden gems, then you're probably also familiar with thrift flipping. ICYDK, it's the process of altering pieces to make them fit better or create a new article of clothing. Not only will you make *unique* garments, but you'll also contribute less waste to the environment!

If you're looking for some inspo, TikTok (aka the ~school of life~) is full of thrift flip or upcycling videos. We decided to compile the best ones to help jumpstart your DIY journey. You can do these with clothes you have at home:

The first rule of an ukay-ukay veteran is to never skip any section of the shop—not even the granny-looking dresses. You can turn them into cute co-ords!

Deconstructing clothes can be hard if you're a beginner. You may opt for embroidering flowers into your clothes to really personalize them.

Thrift flipping isn't just limited to sewing. You can also ~paint~ your clothes to give them an artsy feel.
