Feature Monday will start again next week! Until then, check out this great DIY!
After browsing through Pinterest for almost six hours, I am completely convinced that there is nothing you can’t make from a t-shirt. So, I’m going to make a halter crop top from two old t-shirts that have been sitting on my floor for the past few months.
For this project, you will need:
- Two semi-fitted T-shirts
- needle and thread (or a sewing machine if you have one)
- an iron and ironing board
Time to complete project:
- 2 hours with sewing machine
- 4 hours hand sewing
First step: Take the two shirts and turn them inside out.
Second Step: Cut the sleeves, neckline, and hem off of one of the t-shirts.
(This will be used to cover the neckline and hem of the halter top)
Third step: Cut FIVE 2-inch strips from this shirt.
Then cut the loop open, so it becomes one long strip.
Fourth Step: For the halter top, cut the neckline off and both the sleeves off in a diagonal line.
Fifth Step: To clean up all those raw edges, take the 2-inch strips and fold the strips down the middle, so no raw edges are showing.
Now, iron the strips to secure the fold.
Sixth Step: Sandwich the raw edge of the halter top.
Pin the three layers together.
Seventh Step: When two raw edges meet, cut the excess fabric and fold both of the edges in. Then, pin the clean edge.
Eighth Step: Repeat this process for all the raw edges.
**If you don’t like to sew, you can leave the bottom hem raw.**
Ninth Step: Sew all the edges!
