Don’t have a lot of cash? Or time? Get one of your boyfriend’s or father’s old shirts, make sure it’s not one of his favorites (or do if it belongs to your ex-boyfriend or annoying brother) and make it into a nice top for summer. Only takes a hour or so. This tutorial is perfect for a beginner needing a challenge. Basic draping skills are explained as well as DIY bias tape. All you need is a body, a large roll of paper, measuring tape, scissors, pins, and of course, thread and a sewing machine! (Optional: dressform and cutting mat)
There are 35 steps, it’s not very long, I just like taking a lot of pictures!
Here is the tutorial
