How To Make a Crop Top

This is the hands down the easiest way to re-work and up-cycle any vintage or secondhand Tee or Sweatshirt. A great way on how to make shirts look vintage, the Crop Top. A style that has been a classic for generations. Nothing shows he summer is here like this breezy and easy flowing style. Great for a day spent at the beach for a coverup top for a bathing suit. This is something you create in minuets with any style of tee. A shirt with a whole or rip in the bottom that you want to still wear, this is such an easy way to give it a new life.
Take a look over this how-to and watch the video below to get started on your first crop top!
Once you've mastered how to make vintage tees crop tops there are so many variations on this method. You might find yourself wanting to experiment with our Thrashed and Stained category. In this we offer t-shirts ready to be upcycle that are too worn for regular wear. Some of them are gems and are perfect for a second life reworked as a new piece.
This is such a great way to be part of the sustainability movement, giving these great pieces a new life. Recycling fabric that has years and years more to give rather than letting it to a landfill. Some might worry about how to clean thrifted clothing that has been through a lot but most of the time it's easy. Some spot cleaning with vinegar and a good wash cycle will do the trick. When a stain or dirt won't budge stronger detergents or bleach can take out almost any stain.
