DIY: make your own crop top

Hey everyone :)
I was cleaning out my closet and found a t-shirt that I used to like a lot, but stopped wearing beacause I kind of grew out of it and it was too short to wear. So I thought instead of throwing it away, why not try and make a crop top?
Here's what I did:

1. Draw lines where you are going to cut (use a ruler to make sure it's symmetrical). You can choose how wide you want your straps to be. If you're using a t-shirt that a little small like mine was, make sure to cut it out a little lower on the sides.

2. Cut the sleeves of. When you're done cutting, pull a little along the edges to make sure the edges curl up a little.

3. Cut out the neck (only in the front, so don't keep the t-shirt folded while you do this!). You can choose if you want a round or a V-neck. Don't forget to pull at the edges!

4. Turn the shirt around and cut out the back. I chose too stay high because of the print, but you can cut deeper if you like.

5. Cut off the seems at bottom + pull at the edges to get the same rolled up look.

6. Now you can wear it! I'm wearing it with a high wasted skirt, but you can wear it any way you like. If you want to make a normal tank top, you can use the same techniques, you just need a larger t-shirt to begin with.

Hope you liked it! Let me know what you think and feel free to try it out :)
