DIY: Off-Shoulders Crop Top

Off-shoulders and/or crop top is not a thing in the past, in fact it's on-trend every summer! Finding an off-shoulders crop top with a right fit to my petite body frame is not a straightforward task. That's why I opt for this simple DIY project on refashioning an old blouse into an off-shoulders crop top.

For a mom at home like me, shopping for my personal wants is off the list. I may have time or budget to buy an off-shoulders top but the main concern is the fitting. I am fond of DIY so I rummaged my closet to get a prospect material for the project. Good thing I found this!

I wore this off-shoulders blouse when I was pregnant with my 2 kids. I haven't used this since then and tiny holes were starting to show up in the front section.

But the with the upper part okay and an off-shoulders feature, I think this is the right one for my DIY: Off-Shoulders Crop Top project.

You'll Need: Basic sewing tools and mere sewing skills.

Step 1: Measure 1.5 inches from the last elastic stitch. Then cut.

Step 2: Fold a half inch and sew to make a hemline. Having a sewing machine makes the project fast and easy!

It's done! This is perfect for a day strolling at the beach.

Can't wait to try it on...excuse my not-photogenic pics! Photo credits to my son.

By the way, the lower part of the old blouse that has no holes is still usable. Please check my other post later - DIY: Criss Cross Back Halter Top.
