11JUL2014 // UPCYCLING PT. 3

Top: DIY / Shorts: H&M / Sneakers: CDG PLAY / Kasumi Envelop: Wabisabi / Sunnies: Sunnies Studios

Here's the last part of my up cycling blog post series, it's a crop top that I made from an old turtleneck knit. This one was super easy because all I had to do was cut the neck, arms, and body, then sew the sides for a tighter fit. I really like the unfinished edges, and the way the fabric curls on the hem. I made this early last year, and did a blog post wearing it here. Over the past year, the crop top has easily become a wardrobe staple and is now really easy to find. I just like the idea of a DIY because 1- up cycling! 2- not many others are gonna have the same one ;)
