D I Y / Minimal White Leather Top
I've been making some new garments last weekend which I couldn't find in stores. This minimalistic leather boxy top with a Céline feel and a Calvin Klein neckline was one of them and was incredibly easy to make. Here are the instructions!
•needle and thread/sewing machine
Trace one of your regular racer back tanktops on the back of your piece of leather with chalk. The leather has no stretch and will sit like a box around you once this top is done, so draw an outline of 5cm around the lines of the racerback tanktop that you traced. Add another 5 cm to every side of the back part of the top. Once you cut them out you should have two identical parts of which one is broader than the other (see picture). Sew everything together and make a little slit in the back so that your head can fit through. Done!
