Nothing is more perfect than crop tops plus high-waisted jeans. Here is an easy DIY for a side lace up crop top perfect for that transition from winter into spring with the high-neck line.
I’ve actually had this DIY made a while ago but never got around to photographing outfit photos of it to complete the blog post. Which looking back now is kind of a shame because it has become a go-to top in my closet and could be in yours too! It’s perfect for a night out with the girls or date night. I love it in white because it contrasts with my hair and plays up the tan in my skin. It’s a little bit sexy with the open sides but is also balanced out with the mini turtleneck neckline. It’s just overall a very on trend item that’s easy to mix and match with anything in the wardrobe.
DIY TIME: 1 hr
DIY COST: $ – $$
What you’ll need:
- Crop Top (I got mine from Dynamite, similar here and here)*
- White bias ribbon
- White lace
*My advice is to get a shirt one size bigger since you will be folding over the sides a bit and it will be cut down on the width of the shirt
- Take a pair of scissors and cut the sides of the shirt
- Take approximately 2″ sections of the white bias tape and sew them into loops, you will want to make 20 of these.
- Make sure the shirt is turned inside out and pin the loops with the edge folded over
- Sew, I used a machine for this but this can definitely be hand sewn, it’ll just take a little longer
- Make sure the loops on the matching side line up to the loops you’ve already sewn on
- Repeat on the other side
- Thread in the lace, I used around 50cm per side, in a criss-cross pattern and tie it into a bow on the bottom
