Off Shoulder Top D.I.Y

I am loving this “off-shoulder” trend when it comes to tops and dresses. I normally don’t wear tops that are off shoulder because most of the time they just end up looking sad on me. lol but I love this off shoulder silhouette because its so subtly sexy and doesn’t look sloppy! I thought this top would be kind of difficult to make until I came across this tutorial on Youtube and found out this is the easiest top ever to make!!! Even a beginner could make this! The directions in the video are pretty clear, I followed the exact directions and made 2 versions of this top. I used about 2 yards of ¬†lightweight denim from Joanns fabric to make both of these tops. If you make this, be sure to get lightweight denim so it will be breathable and have some shape!

There are several different ways you could alter this silhouette too. This off shoulder top can be made into a dress by lengthening the fabric for the middle, you could also crop the middle and make the sleeves long, or you could use another fabric, like an ankara print to really make it pop, or you could crop the middle and add elastic at the bottom for a totally different look, like I did. LOL! The possibilities are endless!!!

I had extra fabric leftover so I made a cropped version of the top! I also paired this top with a white midi skirt and wore it on a night out with friends!

You could also pair this top with blue denim jeans, instead of white for a cute “denim on denim” look!
