DIY Crop Top | McCall 6288

Now that the weather is warmer, I am extremely excited about the easy breezy comfortable looks for the spring and summer season. I live for comfort!! There is nothing like being able to crack out a cartwheel in your outfit and look like you’re ready for a date night at the same time.

The midi skirt/crop top trend is a look I have been eyeballing before the weather EVEN thought about getting warm. I have been in love with the crop top since I saw Lisa, from Coming to America, rock a stripe pattern one at the McDowell Christmas Party. How many people remember THAT!!? (I know…I’m dating myself, Right!?!)

This crop top was the perfect touch to keep this border lined dated midi skirt look fresh and on trend. This skirt was found at the Thrift Store for a few bucks. Whoohoo!  The bright neutral fabric color is so easy breezy and has topped my thrift store finds as my MOST fab because it is perfect look and size. I didn’t have to alter anything.

Last but not least, the razor back shirt was created using McCall 6288 (Click HERE). The pattern was designed for a dress but I chose to use it as a crop top for now. Under normal conditions I would NOT recommend sewing such an inexpensive top but I am always trying to improve my sewing skills. The pattern was super easy and I look forward using this one for a lot of effortless/comfortable looks. It’s a great staple pattern to use for all seasons. 

Barry the butterfly decided to do a cameo in my blog. I felt like snow white without the seven dwarfs. 

Remember to have fun with your style and stay beautiful!!
