Give an old sweater a new purpose
Do you have an old sweater that’s seen better days, but you just can’t seem to part with it? Rather than letting it waste away at the bottom of your drawer (and take up a ton of space), Artise has the perfect way to renew it—by turning it into a cute spring crop top.
First, try on the sweater and mark where you would like it to end (Artise recommends at the belly button for a trendy top that pairs well with all of your spring culottes). Once marked, take it off and lay it flat on a flat surface. With fabric scissors, cut straight across the sweater, an inch below where you marked. Next, cut the sleeves off at the seam.
To complete, either fold the bottom of the top under by one inch, using fabric glue or a needle and thread to hold in place; you can also use fabric glue to add a decorative trim across the bottom.
