The Scots beauty has a knack for finding stylish pieces at very reasonable prices in the likes of Asda and Tesco.
But in a recent clip she created a new piece of clothing completely for free.
Alana recycled some cream jeans from the back of her wardrobe into a maxi skirt with a thigh split.
The 5ft 2in mum told followers: “I am obsessed with the way this turned out. Loving my outfit of the day.”
She added: “I’ve got these old cream jeans, I think I’ve only worn them once.
“Have you seen people cutting up their jeans and making them into skirts?
“Well I’m going to do it with these and see how it goes.”
Alana cut through the seams at the back and front of her jeans before stitching a ‘flap’ at either side.
After completing her project, she added: “Let’s try it on. What do we think then?
“Full on DIY job. It’s fine isn’t it, I can so get away with it.
“I’m super proud of myself.”
The fashion fan’s video has racked up more than 101,000 views.
But the finished look has left people divided.
One said: “What a great idea, love it. And that shirt is gorgeous.”
A second wrote: “Looks absolutely amazing. Well done you.”
And a third added: “I love it, really nice.”
Another, however, admitted: “Hmmmmm no I’m not feeling that one, sorry.”
A social media user agreed: “Don’t like the back and front slit is too high, but great idea.”
Meanwhile, a third wrote: “Absolutely no, sorry Alana.”
But Alana took the criticism in her stride, responding: “That’s ok, it’s not for everyone.”
