Darling Alteration: Bow Cropped Top!

I have been eying cropped tops for awhile now either through Pinterest or simply through online clothing sites. I am completely obsessed with their cuteness! With high waisted shorts in style for the summer I cannot help but to love the edginess cropped tops add to an outfit.

I took an old top I did not wear anymore because I did not like the way it fit, so I decided to cut it in half, hem the bottom and make it into a cropped top. Simple as that! The only semi-complicated thing was making the big bow to attach to the front.

I apologize the top is so wrinkled. Haha I threw it in a bag with a ton of other clothes I've been meaning to get around to altering.

1. Lay the top flat and even.

 2. Fold the top in half, or however cropped you want it to be, and then cut the top in half.

3. Hem the bottom of the top by folding in twice.

4. For the bow, which is optional, I used the bottom half of the top I cut to make it. I cut off the original bow because it was too thin and I wanted something that would make a statement. With the bow I made I had to iron the wrinkles out.

5. Align the bow however you would like on your cropped top and then sew it on. It doesn't have to be perfect because it's on the inside and nobody will ever see! :)

The finished cropped top!

I wore this lovely newly altered cropped top with my high waisted destroyed shorts I made from thrifted jeans. Here's my tutorial if you're wondering how I made them!

I rarely ever put my hair up, but the humidity is extremely horrible in the south and it destroys anything I try to attempt on my hair so I relied on a simple side bun. Definitely a look I will do all throughout summer because my hair needs a long rest from all of the heat. Haha.

Definitely my go-to outfit for this summer! For breezy nights wearing an oversized cardigan would be lovely as well. :)
