Every girl wants to be irresistible, demonstrating to others a great press, emphasizing her thin waist and beautiful bust. All this can be done with the help of one small, but trendy wardrobe item – a fashionable shortened summer T-shirt, or a crop top, as it is called among young people.
Back in the dashing 90s, avid fashionable women flaunted in short tops, which only slightly resemble current trends. Today’s popular Crop Tops look more like a closed bra or a very short tank top. But despite this frank sexuality, this clothing will be appropriate to look not only on the beaches but also to adequately and favorably emphasize all the charm of a happy owner, being an element of evening dress code. The main thing is to skillfully combine crocs with other clothes.
The beauty of an exclusive cropped top, bound by your own hands
Modern designers offer a huge number of models and forms of this element of the wardrobe. A variety of colors and prints allows you to create all sorts of images – from sports to sophisticated feminine. Today, many different models of women’s tops can be found on sale, but they are all produced by a whole line (stream), so there is always the fear that by buying a trendy little thing, you can meet a fashionist walking towards you in an identical outfit. In order not to feel embarrassed and not to begin to compare who these clothes go to more, we suggest creating an own exclusive crop-top model.
The knitted top will not only be beneficial to emphasize your flawless figure, but also demonstrate to others the reference taste and skill of the happy owner of this element of the summer wardrobe.
To associate a female crop-top, you first need to decide on the necessary materials and tools. For knitting summer things, it is best to choose a yarn from natural fibers. These are threads from cotton, viscose, flax or bamboo. Things connected from this yarn are breathable and absorb moisture, which is a prerequisite for summer clothes. Crocheted products have many holes and holes that also allow the skin to breathe. And beautiful and openwork patterns add romance and restrained sexuality to your image.
Perhaps now you should not have the slightest doubt in the need to immediately take up the work of making a flying crop with your own hands!
