Hey guys, in this instructable I will be showing you how to make a realllly cute crop top from an old men's shirt, so stay tuned !

Step 1: What You Will Need

For easier instructions on how to do this please watch the attached video above

Step 2: Process

Get your button down shirt and cut your desired length

Step 3: Make a Tube

Cut the shirt so it looks like a rectangle or a tube, do the same for the sleeves.

Step 4: Sewing

With right sides facing, sew up the side seams of the tube and sew up the underarm seam of the sleeves. Hem the bottom of the sleeve and tube if needed

Cut three pieces of elastic

  • 1 & 2 - the measurement of your upper arm
  • 3 - measurement of your upper chest

Place these elastic pieces in the top of the sleeve and tube, fold over the edge of the cloth over the elastic and top stitch in place.

Attach sleeves to tube by matching up side seam and underarm seam and sewing a horizontal line back and forth on the inside. And you are done !
