In this DIY I show you how to make a super easy light-weight denim off-the-shoulder crop top.
This style of top is so on trend right now as it features romanticism, off-the-shoulder, maybe even a little Victorian, and the denim gives it a seventies vibe. It’s the perfect item to take with you when travelling because it can be worn in several different ways – five of which I demonstrate in the video!
What I love most about DIY is that you get to customize your creation however you like. You can play around with different lengths, fabrics and colours. I’m keen to make the cropped part a little longer so that it can be worn as a dress! The possibilities are truly endless.

Right-click the above diagram and click Save image as… to download the bigger version. Please note that the diagrams are not to scale and should be used as a reference only. Do also note that the seam and hem allowances have already been included. I’m a size Medium, but this top is pretty loose fitting so you could easily add or subtract inches to fit your own measurements accordingly.
I’m a self-taught sewist and DIYer, so the techniques I show you in my video are things that work for me at the time the video has been recorded. It may not necessarily be the “industry” way, but it’s certainly an easy way, and I’m happy to share my learnings with you as I embark on this creative journey!
