I finally got off my keester and worked on some projects recently.
Here are some cute no sew halter tops you can make for the Summer months!
This shirt should look familiar.
I tried making this into another top but I hated how it looked on me.
So I fixed it!
It looks much better like this! I used 3 different colors of string from Tshirts to make the ties.
This is a shirt I bought at the flea market a couple years ago. That skirt should look familiar too
I can’t believe how long my hair is getting!
It says: Nature’s Medicine. Toke 2 of these and call me in the morning.
The sexy nurse caught my eye. I had to have it!
This is how I did the back:
The ties was from a scrap ribbon bag I bought at a rummage sale.
I’m trying to utilize the 80 million yards of scrap ribbon and tshirt material I have laying around my crafting area…..slowly but surely! lol
I made both of these in the same manner as the diagrams below:
This is the front. Try on the large tshirt, mark where you want everything to fit and where you want your neckline to be and cut where indicated in red. The dots on the sides are for your ribbon holes.
This is the back. I cut strips of fabric for my neck ties.
String your ribbon or Tshirt scrap string through the holes in the front of your shirt in the same manner as a shoelace.
Try on your top again and adjust as needed.
There you have your cute no sew halter top!
I also made a handkerchief top because I always wanted one….
And it was piratey too!
This is the back:
I used a gold trimmed scrap ribbon for the neck ties because I thought it was appropriate for this project
I found this at the flea market but you can use any large fabric panel or handkerchief for this project.
There are a couple ways to make a halter top from a handkerchief:
This is how I made the one I’m wearing.
I folded the top corner to the middle of the scarf and spot sewed the point in the middle.You can glue it if you can’t sew
Then I made tiny holes indicated in red on the left and right corners of the scarf then strung my ribbon through and tied it behind my back.
You can also make another top like this:
Take the top corner of the handkerchief and fold it all the way down to the bottom point.
If there is enough fabric, you can just tie the left with the right corner of the fabric behind you, or cut tiny holes where you can string a ribbon through then tie it behind.
I don’t like the way strapless tops look on me so I chose a halter style instead.
Have you been making any cute tops for the Summer lately?
