DIY: cropped levi’s top

Wow, hello blog world. I know, I know, it’s been a while. I started university on Monday and fresher’s has been insane so far! I’ve barely had time to sleep on account of several events, all of which have included alcohol.

Do you ever just get bored of an old t-shirt and kind of feel like you want to spruce it up?

Something I always do and something that is so so simple – I crop them. This gives the item a more flattering look and seriously transforms it! Personally I like to add some rips and holes because I like the look of it.

Here’s the finished product! I chose to cut and rip the hem as I cropped it to not have such a clean cut at the bottom. I created the small rips by pulling at the fabric with scissors – don’t cut actual holes. Instead, drag the scissors across the fabric for a worn down, distressed look.

And finally – how it looks on. I’m super pleased with the result and this literally took me 5 minutes.

stay rad,

madde

    That’s so cute! I definitely want to try to bleach and distress my own t shirts one day! I love cropping sweatshirts too, it’s so cute and comfy.
