DIY HALTER NECK CROP TOP10:00 am
If you haven't noticed fashion's obsession with everything 90s, space aged and let's face it, tacky, then you've been living under a rock. And if you want to come out from that rock and join the space/90s/tacky bandwagon, you can follow these simple steps to making your own halter top crop top. This is actually one of the easiest DIYs I have ever done, in fact it only took me a couple of hours in total! I'd give it a difficulty rating of 2/5.
To make your own halter neck crop top, you will need:
✩1.5m of your chosen fabric (preferably with stretch)
✩1m ribbon or cord
✩thread (use polyester for stretchy fabrics)
✩newspaper or tracing paper
You will need your measurements for this, if you can find somebody else to take them for you they'll be more accurate, just remember to leave some extra for seam allowances! These are the shapes of your pattern pieces, once you have those, just follow these simple steps.
p.s when you have sewn your top together, there will be a point at the top at the front, fold this over into a small triangle and sew about 1.5cm away from the edge, this is where you will thread your ribbon or cord to tie around the neck.
And voilá! You've got your sassy halter top crop top. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and give it a go! If you have any questions, or any results to show me, please please drop me a tweet or tag me on instagram, I'd love to see your handmade halter tops :)
