Adding a lace-up component to any piece is always a great way to spice things up. Here's how to easily transform a basic fitted shirt into a lace-up back crop top — no sewing machine required! Be sure to connect with me on Instagram for more ideas and fun behind the scenes stuff!
What you'll need:
T-shirt (I used a long sleeve shirt)
Needle and thread

Step 1: Cut Shirt
Cut a vertical line up the middle of the back of the shirt.
Step 2: Add Stitch Witchery
Add strips of stitch witchery to the cut edges and fold them over, then iron to bond the folds. These double-layered edges will add reinforcement for the lace-up loops.
Step 3: Add Loops
Cut 1/2-inch loops from the elastic and attach them along the double-layered edges with a needle and thread.
Step 4: Lace It Up
Zig-zag lace the elastic cord so the ends are at the bottom, then tie them in a bow.
Look at that transformation! Thank you for checking out this tutorial and I hope you give it a try. :)
