My friend Grace (of Moda Explotitudor)and I had an idea to have a DIY Valentines!!!:) and we did!:), two looks, a casual day look and an evening look.
For this post, I will share details on the casual look,
Grace is wearing :-
Button Jewelry- earrings and necklaces, tutorial HERE
Fringe crop T-shirt. Coincidentally, we ended up cutting up our T-shirts the same way.
High waist jeans that she cut up to shorts
Crochet braids- Soft Dreadlocks, which she had her sister do for her
I am wearing:-
Button Jewelry- earrings, tutorial HERE
Gold coated chain
Fringe crop T-shirt
High-waist denim I shredded around the knees
For this post, I will show you how we made our crop tees:)
You will need:-
Fitting T-shirt of preferred color
I got the T shirt from Gikomba market. I was not going to cut up a costly tshirt.
Mark where you want the cut to reach. I wanted mine the size of a crop top, then cut off the hem from the sleeves and bottom.
Lay the t-shirt on a flat surface so that you’ll be able to work better, then cut strips up the shirt up to the point you marked. I also cut off the side hem up to this point. You could measure and have equal strips but I free-handed the whole thing.
Pull the strips a bit and that folds the strips and hides the frayed ends.
Knot the end of the cut (or not!), whatever makes you happy.
Aaand you have a really simple, really quick way to DIY your crop top.:)
Here’s us rocking our crop tshirts
