Do over: Turn your old t-shirt into a chic crop top!


We can't help it—we love the crop top. It's the ultimate styling solution to all your favorite wardrobe pieces, and looks great no matter what. Instead of tossing away your old t-shirt, try making a trendy top out of it—all you need are some scissors, a ruler and a crop top-worthy shirt. Here's how to amp up that summer wardrobe in minutes...

What you’ll need:

  • Old T-shirt
  • Pair of Scissors
  • Ruler or measuring tape

What you’ll do:

Step 1: Lay your t-shirt out on a flat surface and cut along the hem of each sleeve. 

Step 2: Toss the extra fabric to the side, then cut along the hem of the collar.

Step 3: Depending on how much tummy you want to show, measure with a ruler or tape measure to figure out what your ideal length is.

Step 4: Start from the bottom of the front layer of your shirt and cut up on a diagonal to the desired length of your t-shirt.

Step 5: Cut the other side to create two triangles (these will be your ties).


Step 6: Tie each side with hanging fabric into a knot.
