::Project ReStyle // collared halter top::

Monday 9 May 2011

A while back I saw an amazing Free People blue striped, collared halter top, but didn't buy it because I told myself I could make it. Fast forward 2 years and I finally did it.

Supplies: collared shirt {thrifted $2}, fabric scissors, needle + thread

Simple steps from left to right:
  • Start by cutting off the front portion of the sleeves, from the armpit to the collar. 
  • Continue on the back cutting from the armpit straight across the back {I left a 3" section connected in the back to add a braided detail}.
  • Snip the back piece.
  • Cut three strips in the longer bottom portion.
  • Braid the strips and make a few stitches to attach the braid to the top portion.
