Wardrobe DIY | Prairie Style Crop Top
Discovering myself in need of some cute Summer shirts, short enough to leave untucked, and long enough to cover my midrif, I delved into my “to mend” pile for some supplies. Every time I go thrifting, I find a few things that would work if I tweaked them a bit. Usually I just let them go, but this shirt was too cute to pass up.
For this project, all I had to do was a bit of trimming and a bit of stitching. I cut off the sleeves first, and then tried on the blouse to see what length I wanted the bodice to be. Marking that length with a safety pin, I then took my fabric scissors and carefully chopped off the bottom.
The last part involved a bit of sewing. I just turned the edged into two folds, and stitched closed the hem with my sewing machine. If you don’t have a sewing machine, but own an iron, you could use some fusible bond tape to close your hems.
It was a super easy project that took about twenty minutes total. I’m already digging through my mending pile to see what else I can whip up for these hot Summer-like days that have finally arrived.
