DIY Designer Top - TUTORIAL

I recently came across this designer top and thought to myself " I could make that!" and that's exactly what I did. So here is an easy-peasy tutorial for you to get that designer look for less!

Neulich habe ich ein hinreißendes Designer Top entdeckt, aber statt es für etliche $$$ zu kaufen habe ich mir ein ähnliches selber gemacht, denn es ist so einfach nachzumachen! Und wie das geht seht ihr hier:

You will need /Was man braucht

1 plain cotton tank top, colour of your choice
1 Baumwolltop mit etwas breiteren Trägern, uni
Variety of ribbons and embellishments, same or similar colour as top
Einige hübsche Bänder und Borten in der Farbe des Tops
Matching thread, sewing needle
Passendes Garn, Nadel zum Nähen

Step One/Schritt Eins

make about 6 - 8 bows from the ribbon
etwa 6 - 8 Schleifen machen

Step Two/Schritt Zwei

plan the layout of the ribbons along one side of the strap
bevor ihr mit dem Annähen beginnt, das Layout der Schleifen festlegen

Step Three/Schritt Drei

sew on the ribbons and embellishment by hand - FINISHED
Mit der Hand die Schleifen an den Träger annähen - FERTIG!

See how easy it was to create that designer look in three simple steps?
So einfach ist es ein Designer Top in drei Schritten selbst zu kreieren!
