Anna Crop Top

Leicester, Unite...






I am obsessed with making crop tops at the minute using the bodices of dresses! but I discovered a problem… I put a closed zipper on the last crop top I made and lets just say to takes of a lot of wiggling and breathing in to get the top on! So with this crop top I used an open zip, so you can put it on like a jacket. Much easier!

I love this fabric by Fabric Godmother ( well I love all of her fabric unfortunately for my bank balance! :P) I love the colours and the giant floral print!

Crop tops are so fun to make and really easy. I can’t wait till the weather warms up so I can wear them out… well with permission from my mum anyway! :)

I used the bodice from the Anna Dress by By Hand London. I love the pleats on the bodice and how they flatter the body. I also love the high neckline and leaves.

The skirt is a DIY circle skirt I made last year. I love the swish of it! So much fun to twirl in!

Just got to wait for the famous miserable weather to pick up now.. if not I can always wear my transparent coat over the top!

Thank youxx

    Very nice cropped top! Just a quick tip. If you want to use regular zippers you can but put them upside down so that the part that stays closed is at the neckline. Simply put your head and arms in with ease and zip the top closed downward! Works like a charm….

    What a Great outfit!! Gorgeous top and the skirt is so Nice together!! ps. you can also use a zipper up-side-down in the left side and then it would be easy to take on and off :-)

    Oh hell yeah! You look great and what an awesome idea to turn it into a crop top. Love Fabric Godmother too, but I can always hear my credit card go “nooooooooooooooooooo” every time I have a browse :P
