Hey everyone! I am gearing up for a trip home to Minnesota (I'm calling it a vacation) and I could use a few new items to bring along! For this refashion I started with a way to small skirt. It fit one of my thighs, and you can literally take a look.
I knew I didn't want to leave this as a skirt it just isn't my style and there was a limited amount of fabric to work with. Thinking about this I decided to make a vintage inspired crop top to pair with my high wasted skirts!
For this refashion I flipped it and used the top band of the skirt as the bottom band of the top. I then cut the top to be wider in the front and narrower in the back and gave it a simple hem. For the straps I used the existing bottom hem folded it over, sewed it, and cut it at the hems to create two straps. Thankfully they turned out to be long enough to make a cross in the back. Finally I added the ruching in the front for a vintage vibe. I paired it with a black bandeau here, but it can be paired with any color. For more detail about this refashion take a look at my blog post.
Until next time stay creative!
