20 DIY Crop Tops Made From Old Clothes You Need To Try

Crop tops have been one of my favorite trends for a while now. They’re fun to wear and they’re so versatile – and, contrary to some beliefs, anyone can rock a crop top. But these tiny pieces of fabric can get pretty pricey, especially if you’re more focused on having a good summer than working your butt off to make money to go shopping.

So why not take the old clothes you don’t wear anymore and turn them into a crop top? It’s much easier than you’d think! While most of the below tutorials are no-sew, a few are a little bit more complicated (for the more experienced DIY-er). Want to show off a new top without spending much money? Here are 20 DIY crop tops tutorials made from old clothes you need to try:
