DIY: 2 minute beach shirt
Granted, I probably have the worst timing in the world. I've had this in my hard drive for quite some time and I really should have posted this on the blog before the infamous #laboracay weekend. The reason for my procrastination is because I wanted to do a "when worn" shot but I never got around to doing it so I might as well just post this already and have a follow up with that in a different article. Hoping laboracay isn't your last beach getaway for the summer, here's a super, quick, easy and cute crop top that you can wear over bikinis. Come to think of it, they would also look great with shorts during a casual stroll in the mall.
What You'll Need:
- mens t-shirt
- tape measure
First, you can opt to eaither cut off the sleeves or just fold them over several times like the ones found in Topshop. I got these from Dennis's closet and cut off the sleeves a long time ago so I wasn't faced with the same option. Didn't want to ruin any more of his shirts... :P
Measure how long you want your finished shirt to be...mark/fold...

Snip back portion of your shirt (the reason why you want to do this separately from the front is so you'll have an even hem)
