Today's makeover is a 90s plaid button up I bought at a thrift store a few weeks ago. I loved the bright summery plaid but was not a big fan of the poofy sleeves or boring length, so I decided to make it into a crop top!
First, I removed the sleeve seams with a seam ripper, always a slow process but it always is worth it. You can also just cut off the sleeves, but the benefit of using a seam ripper is that the folded sleeve hem will still be in place! All I had to do was fold it inward once more and sew a new seam! Then, I marked the new desired length with a marker, cut it, and hemmed the bottom. That's all folks!
The newly made-over crop top is now for sale in my shop. If people seem interested in these button up crop tops, I may make a few more too! I can't wait to pair them with sandals and a high waisted maxi skirt next!
