Create a feminine top with this easy DIY !
Change your old shirt into a beautiful one following these steps.
What you need :
Turn the shirt around with the back facing up.
Cut off the collar through the shirt to create the off the shoulders look. Measure your body where you want the top to start (example : 101 cm).
Then cut the elastic to this measurement and remove 5 cm (101-5= 96 cm). This will make sure that the elastic will be tight enough.
Cut the bottom of the shirt to the desired length.
For the top of the shirt : fold and pin the top raw edge of the shirt to create the tunnel for the elastic to go through. Sew and leave 4 cm gap to later add the elastic.
Use the help of a knitting needle to thread the elastic through the tunnel.
Sew the gap of the tunnel to finish the top.
Adjust the shirring in a pretty way (all around the top).
