D.I.Y - crop top







 I bought this top agggees ago from Save mart in Christchurch. I love colour and pattern but found it came down to a really awkward length to wear? So I decided to give it the chop and make it in to a crop top. This is probably the simplest D.I.Y ever? It can be a bit daunting hacking up clothes but if you never wear it anyway what do you have to lose? Just make sure you cut off less than you think you’re going to want off. You can’t add fabric back on but you can keep cutting. Hopefully I will be able to get a lot of wear out of this in the summer! Yes its ages away... But I am so excited!

  5. Ooo love this idea, I definitely have some old tops that could do with some diy-ing and this is a great idea :) The top you have used works so well, and I love that as its a crop, it doesnt really matter how precise the cutting line is! xx
