DIY transform t-shirt into one shoulder crop top

Hey! Here is another quick and easy clothing hack for you. last week I did the same trick with a different basic shirt. Since my plan is to make two more with this hack, I might as well share how I transformed my simple basic shirt into a one shoulder top.  I came up with the idea, because I was not feeling paying 30 euros for a simple one shoulder top. You can watch the video here or click on gimme more for the written tutorial.

How to make a one shoulder top
Step 1
Lay your shirt on a flat service, make it wrinkle free.

Step 2
Make a new neckline. You can draw out the shape first before cutting. Then try on the shirt to check if you you're happy with the new shape.

Step 3 
You can skip this step if you don't want a crop. From your marking, cut straight across your shirt.

Step 4
Measure the elastic along the edge, leave this much space and cut the elastic.

Step 5
Sew ends together with a zigzag stitch.

Step 6
Pin the elastic in four midpoints. In the shoulder seam, side seam, centre front and in the centre back as shown.

Step 7
Sew the elastic on with a zigzag stitch, stretch the elastic while your sewing.

Step 8
Fold the edge then sew along the edge again, using a zigzag stitch. Stretch out the top when you sew.
