One of the biggest trends in fashion this year is the cropped top. Cropped tops are, of course, not meant to be tucked in, so they’re usually hemmed above the waistline so a little skin shows on the torso. After seeing so many examples during my time at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week while taking pictures at runway shows, I thought I’d take a stab at creating my own version to illustrate just how easy this trend is to adopt while using something you may find at Goodwill, or a blouse or top you already have in your closet. It’s really a simple project to do, even for those without any sewing skills. If you like this DIY, you may be able to achieve it your own way by using iron-on fabric bond to create hems like I will show here. If you don’t have an iron, well perhaps it’s time to get one! Or, perhaps you might trade a service or job to someone who could sew this for you. Bartering is just a great way to benefit both parties involved!
