DIY Inspiration - Topshop

Hello lovelies! I was looking through all of your lovely blogs the other day and came across an outfit post on Dozen Dresses which really inspired me. The top that Sonia, from Dozen Dresses, is wearing in the images below is from Topshop and I just love the slits in the arms because it just makes an outfit a bit more interesting, plus it adds interest to an average, boring top!

After seeing this I thought I would just cut some slits in the sleeves of an old top I had and hope that it turned out just as good as this one!

You will need:
  • Top
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pins

 Step 1: Measure 1.5 inches in from the edge of the arm and mark with pins.

Step 2. Measure 0.5 inches in between each cut that you will make and mark with a pin. You can cut free hand, I'm just picky! Then just cut every 0.5 inches up to your line of pins, simple!

And there you have it! Excuse the terrible photo's, I had to take them quickly before popping out. An outfit post including this top will be up tomorrow so you can see the top properly within an outfit. I think it's a great, simple way to add detail to a plain top.

P.S - Don't forget, you can now catch the latest posts on my Facebook page and just a glimps of the sorts of clothes I will be selling in the summer! And you can follow me on bloglovin' by clicking the link below!
