Like I promised! A DIY cross cropped top!
Anyway, I did this weeks before school started, so obviously I was bored. I was thinking about my old school's skirt, which was checkered and red, so I thought that it would match a plain white cropped top and leggings. Well, I didn't have a plain white cropped top, so I just cut out one of the shirts I sleep in and made a whole new shirt! Then the white cropped top really didn't match the skirt and I hated it plain, so might as well do something hipster and sew on a cross, right?
Much much better without the skirt if you ask me! A polo would be better.

What you need:
- An old white shirt
- Black fabric
- Sewing Kit
1. I cut my white shirt to look like a cropped top. I cut the sleeves out and the neckline for more cleavage.I forgot to take photos, but you can cut it to any way you want!
I also cut the bottom part, the front of the shirt is shorter than its behind to make it look a bit nicer (base it on the photo) Oh, and that's the uniform's skirt that was supposed to match with the white cropped top!
2. I actually did this with another black shirt since the sleeves were too tight and the neckline choked me (it was a gift from my cousin) and plus it looked a lot better as a cropped top.
3. Then after I cut and sewed the black fabric together and pinned the cross to the position I want it, I start sewing!
