Hey guys! So I always love doing DIYs obviously. I love reusing old clothes to make newer looking ones. So for this DIY all you need is:
– a tshirt you want to make into a crop top
– crayon (if you want)
Take your old t-shirt and cut around the neck seam. I normally just follow the seam that is already there and then cut more later if I want a different shape or length.
Next take your crayon and draw where you want to cut your sleeves off. I normally just start with halfway in between the sleeve seam and neck seam because you can always go back and cut more off if you don’t like it. I used a white crayon to draw the outline so I could cut neatly.
Cut both sides off. You can either use the scrap from the one sleeve to measure out the other side so they are the same or you can fold your shirt in half and cut along the edge.
Next you are going to be cutting the bottom of the shirt. I cut a chunk off (about 4-6 inches) depending on how big the shirt is. After that, Use your crayon to draw like a half moon shape.
Cut along the line
Next you want to cut the back so it is the opposite shape of the front. You dont really have to cut much off. I only trimmed a little triangle on each side so it was not as boxy. You can use your crayon to trace this as well.
This is what it should look like.
You can either end there or make it a racerback tank. Thats what i’m going to do. I used my crayon to trace where I was going to cut in the back of the shirt. When you cut, make sure its only in the back and not on the front of the shirt.
Tada! You’re done. Heres my finished shirt
