Crop tops can be winter friendly but at this point who’s thinking of winter? I think we’re all ready for SPRING! Here’s an easy DIY for turning an old or thrift tee into a crop top. Check out the step by step directions after the cut:
Start by using a basic or graphic tee. I picked this one because the color screams warmer days and the material is soft and it’s a bit oversized.
I used a measuring tape to figure out how far I will cut up. About 10 inches is perfect. You can mark the area with a marker for better precision.
Now you will cut up the side using the seam as a guide.
You should have one simple slit.
Do the same for the under side.
Turn the shirt over where the front side is laying down and you will now cut the back flap off leaving the front intact.
Your shirt should now look like this.
Cut a slit straight up the middle.
Cut one side on a diagonal. Then do the same for the other side. This will be your front ties.
Your final cuts should make your tee look like this! Try it on with a pair of high-waisted jeans and sport it all Spring long!
