Basic Tee to Trendy Crop Top

Hey there! You opened the blog after reading the title, that means you are interested in DIYs or reusing your clothes. I encourage you to do this small DIY and I guarantee it will turn out great.

We tend to have some clothes that have some stain or we just don't like the plain style of it anymore. So here's a way to recycle them. It won't be much of hassle trust me(I'm also very lazy).

Step 1: Take any tshirt or shirt or top (plain recommended).

Step 2: Cut it to the length you prefer or don’t if you want to keep the same length. Additionally, I have folded the sleeves to make it look like “Muscle Tee”.

Cut the tee according to my crop top length

Step 3: Take small portions randomly, twist them a little and secure them with a rubber band.

Step 4: Use fabric whitener (for black/dark colored tee) or fabric dye (for light colored tee). Pour it on these secured spots and rest it for 30-60 minutes depending on the product you are using.

After 10 mins, it looks like this.

Step 5: Remove the rubber bands and wash it off.

Final Result

Secret confession:

>> It actually didn’t turn out as I wanted it to. But it’s okay. Let’s keep it a secret between you guys and me🀫. When I’ll wear this outside no one is going to suspect anything. It’ll be a patterned crop top for them.

>> The reason was The Fabric. It also depends on the fabric, because the same procedure turned pretty well for other clothes.

Similar to this DIY, I recycled/ recreated some of my other boring tees.

Tell me if you found these pictures helpful. Also if you do try this, please share the pictures. I would loveee to see them.

Pro Tip: You can try the same on bottoms/jeans also.

If you need video tutorials for any of these, comment down. I’ll find and attach youtube links for the same.
