Have you noticed that all tops are now cropped? Well I'm into it but I'm not about to drop dough on something that involves some old t shirts and a pair of scissors! Don't by, make!

If you are anything like me, you have an abundance of t-shirts in your closet you are sick of, well why not give them new life?

I wore this on July 4th after cutting off the bottom 4 inches. I wasn't a fan of the shape of the shirt on the bottom where it dipped. Now I like it again :)

Another example of an old tank that was a little too flowey for me. Sometimes shirts like this make be look bigger because I am so petite (I'm only 5'1).

So I cute this one too! Now I love it with a maxi skirt.

The last item I cropped, was a hoodie I've had for ages. It was a little to bulky, so I decided to crop it between where it said Pt. Pleasant and Beach so it would still make sense.

this time around, I needed to remove the front pocket too using this tool.

I don't have a clear method when it comes to cropping my shirts, I usually just lay it on me and see how long I want it to be then cut as straight as I can laying the top across the floor. I also like the unhemmed look so this is super easy if you are not a master seamstress.

Suggested materials:
  • Old shirts   (from your closet)
  • Scissors
