Talented daughter revamps her dad’s wardrobe into high-quality fashion pieces

Emerald Pellot

All Paige Leneigh’s dad wanted for Father’s Day this year was to go viral. So, she found a creative way to give the gift of internet popularity. The fashion designer behind the upcycled clothing brand Leneighz already had the sewing skills to initiate her plan.

“I reconstructed a few of his clothes in a couple of hours,” Paige explained on TikTok.

Paige took three of her dad’s outfits and completely altered them into womenswear ensembles. It’s hard to believe the new pieces, which look so high quality they could be off the rack, only took two hours to complete.

First, her dad struts his stuff in a blue NBA raglan tee and black shorts. Paige remade the shirt into a trendy, backless crop top with a drawstring hem and paired the blouse with leather pants and matching blue open toe shoes.

Next, dad rocks a short-sleeved, tan raglan tee, dark blue jeans and matching boots. Paige turns the shirt into a bodycon dress with corsetted side details and completed the look with white heels and a red fanny pack.

For the final look, dad is looking sharp in a light grey sweater vest over a black button-down and black slacks. Paige morphs the sweater vest into a two-piece outfit. The preppy cropped v-neck sweater and mini skirt look like something Cher Horowitz would rock in “Clueless.”

Paige’s dad will be pleased to know the video earned over 167,000 views.

“His little model walk was sooo cute,” one person commented.

“You are so talented! But I’m lowkey sad that he can’t wear that sweater vest anymore cause he looked so cute,” another added.

“Your dad is so adorable and the clothes look SO good,” one user wrote.

While Paige’s dad doesn’t have any social media, she mentioned in the comment section that she would be reading him all of the kind feedback.
