For your waist measurement, measure around the smallest part of your waist and add one inch. For your bust measurement, measure around the center of your bust and add one inch. For the length, start from you shoulders. The length will vary depending on how long you want your crop top. Be sure to add two extra inches for hemming or altering. Since you will be measuring around your body, you will need to divide your waist and bust measurement in half to compensate for each piece of fabric.
When you cut your fabric, you will have a front and back piece that you will later sew together. Cut out a crop top pattern on newspaper. Before you cut your fabric, cut the shape you want your crop top to be on the newspaper first. You need to cut the pattern to your unique measurements. Here are the measurements to keep in mind: Hold up your newspaper top.
This will allow you to check out the cut and fit of your soon-to-be crop top. Each piece should come to the middle of each of your sides underneath your arms and have additional room for the seam. Leave the length longer than you anticipate the final product being so you can leave room for error.
Use your newspaper cut out as an outline when cutting out your fabric. Place the newspaper flat onto the fabric, and trace it with a fabric marker or pencil. Remember to cut out two identical pieces that you will later sew together. Lay each piece on top of one another with the "wrong sides" facing out.
Sew along the edges about a quarter of an inch in. Don't sew the bottom of your crop top together. Each piece needs to be hemmed individually at the bottom opening. Finish the bottom hem. If you want the crop top to be shorter, cut the additional fabric with scissors and then hem it. Make darts along the arm hole for a tighter fit. Before you sew your two pieces together, draw a horizontal line on the inside of your front piece under the armhole.
Your line needs to be about six to eight inches long. From your horizontal line, you need to draw two more lines that angle away from the tip of your horizontal line. Start from the inside of the line and angle out back towards the armhole. It should resemble a triangle when you are done. Take each angled line, and fold them onto the horizontal line. Use a pic to keep the fabric in place. Using a straight stitch, sew along the edges of your fold.
This will create a more form fitting shape around your bust line. You can just cut an old shirt that doesn't fit anymore in half, I have done it and it turned out great. Not Helpful 3 Helpful You can wear a crop top no matter what size you are.
As long as you are confident, you can pull it off! Not Helpful 2 Helpful You don't need to hem the shirt, and have a raw-cut bottom. If you really don't want to sew, use fabric glue. The crop top I made came out with a jagged bottom. What should I do? I tried cutting it straight but it did not work. If you were using regular scissors, they tend to make jagged cuts. Fabric scissors are designed to slice through fabric with relative ease and make cutting it easier.
For the best look, mark both the front and back where you want to cut and then go up the side seam so that you can cut them independently. Not Helpful 2 Helpful 7.

A sewing machine like the Brother or Singer Tradition will have most of the basic stitches for a beginner and often comes with instructions on how to use the machine.

It is easier though to use a sewing machine, and use triple stretch stitch but be sure not to make a mistake because it will be hard to undo! Not Helpful 4 Helpful 2.

Quick Summary If you want to make a crop top from an old shirt, first figure out how short you want your top, add about 1 inch to that length for the hem, pin up the bottom to that length, and use fabric scissors to cut off the extra fabric.
Did this summary help you? Tips It's recommended that you make your top a little longer than you want, so as to leave room for error. Use a non-permanent or semi-permanent marker or chalk to mark where you'll crop your shirt. This way, if you accidentally get it on an unwanted part of your shirt, it will come off in the wash more easily than permanent ink.
If you're making a curved hem, use fabric scissors instead of a fabric cutter, as the scissors will be easier to maneuver. When making markings to crop your top, do it while wearing the top so that you get a rough idea of what it would look like on your body. You can also make a crop top from leggings. All you have to do is fold in half and cut out the crotch.
Warnings Be careful, as fabric cutters and scissors are very sharp! Make sure you have permission to cut your top before doing it.
