DIY : Cropped Tank Top




Cropped Top - DIY

Here's another DIY done by Yours Truly!


I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet.
Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.

Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!

Supplies that you need :

Big Tshirts and Scissors


Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.

Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt! 
If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.

Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the
part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.

Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.

Really simple right?


Here's another step to make another different style for your cropped tank top!

Supplies that you need :

Big Tshirt , Scissors, Buttons, Pencil, Thread and Needle.


Step One : Put on the shirt and mark the part where you wanna cut off.

Step Two : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.

Step Three : Cut the off the part you marked and try on the shirt! 
If the sleeve is too thick cut it again til the sleeve becomes more thin.

Step Four : Cut off the thread on the shoulder strap and tie it into a ribbon like this.

Step Five : Use extra fabric to make a small pocket for the front so that it doesn't look so plain 
and boring. Sew on the buttons on the pockets before sewing the pocket on.

Step Six : Cut off the bottom hems off  and again pull the fabric till it loosens and rolls up.

DONE!
It will look something like this!


Here's another one I made!

The steps are all the same but for this piece I tied a ribbon for all four straps! 
Have fun! xD
