90s crop top

When I saw this crop top in Topshop for £16, I decided to take on the challenge to make my own version for less. I took a trip to the fabric shop to buy this fabric for a mere £4.50 a metre, and then spent just an hour and a half constructing it. I also think I actually prefer this fabric as well, plus it has a really nice feel and stretch to it. Considering I used very small amounts of fabric the whole thing probably cost about £2.50 to make from scratch (which is definitely a better deal than £16!). Using bias binding may also be my new favourite sewing technique as it's so much easier for hemming especially on stretch fabrics like this which are normally a nightmare to sew with.

Also new in this post are my boots. They were £8 from Missguided! Yes, just £8! They're so nice, really comfy and great for all year round.
