DIY Cropped Tank

As you may or may not know, I am a huge country music fan, as well as a loyal Stagecoach Country Music Festival-goer. This year marks my 6th year attending, and I swear I’ll go every year for my whole life if I can.  As of today, it is only a few days away, so the prep work is in full force.

Eric Church will be performing on Friday night this year (SO excited!), and I decided I wanted to wear something sort of rock-and-rock/grung-ish for that day. I then got the idea in my head that I really wanted to wear a Coors Light shirt, but couldn’t find any that quite fit my liking.

Insert: DIY Coors Light crop top. I bought this men’s shirt from Target, and turned it into something more girly and weather-appropriate. I love the soft material, and the classic Coors logo – it was exactly what I was looking for, but it needed to be… trimmed. So that’s exactly what I did, I cut it up and turned it into a crop top that’s much more me.

I still need to clean up the edges a bit here and there, but I thought I’d share a few pictures of the before and after. All I used was a pair of scissors, as I wasn’t going for anything too perfect. I am super excited with how it turned out, and seriously can’t wait to wear it. I plan to pair it with a black bikini underneath, some jean shorts, a black belt, and of course, my cowboy boots.

A few tips:

– Start cutting less first. You can always go back in and cut more here and there, but you definitely can’t go back in and add fabric.

– I recommend trying it on after each cut you make. It looks much different on the floor than it does on your body, so definitely check out the way it fits throughout the process!

– Remember: it does not have to be perfect, that’s the whole point of  homemade! Don’t worry about symmetry and straight lines so much — that’s what gives it character!
