Hello world. Here’s to a new month 🙂
Thanks to the internet you can do pretty much anything, like make this cute cross over crop top by upcycling an old tank.
What you’ll need:
- stretchy tank top. Emphasis on stretchy!
- tape measure
- pair of scissors
- sewing machine/needle and thread
- zip (optional)
Place the tank top back side up. Measure how low you want it at the back and mark that on the top; making sure it’ll cover your bra (don’t be shady). Then cut off the bottom like so:
Turn it so that the front faces up. Fold the tank top to get the middle line along the front and cut it open like so:
You can leave it here. Wear it and cross over the bottom pieces to your back and tie a knot; if you’re lazy 😛
Moving on, now to fasten the back. Two options:
1. Turn the top inside out, place the bottom pieces right sides facing together and straight stitch it like so:
2. Instead of stitching the back, add a zip for easy putting on and taking off 😉
You can adjust the neckline depending on your cleavage preference 😀 I just tucked it. Feel free to hem it for a cleaner look. I didn’t because my tank top is jersey so cut edges simply roll back without fraying.
Isn’t it lovely? That’s my elbow in case you were wondering. I really need to get a photographer though. I’m accepting resumes 😀
See you on the next one 🙂
