DIY Fringe Crop Top (From Dress to Crop Top)

Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the original dress. This red lace crop top was a mid-knee dress (American Rag). I had found the dress at the thrift store for $4 and knew I just had to do something with it. I cut the dress to about three inches above my belly button and sewed a fringe around it with a simple stitch! There was a red fabric underneath the lace (so it wasn't originally see-through, which I cut out!) It worked out so well that I cut an old (partially ripping) lace peplum top I had and added beads to the edge!

 I would definitely recommend sewing the shirt inside out (unless you want to edge of the fringe to show). 

It's such a perfect way to revamp old dresses and shirts for summer concerts and festivals! In total time it took me about 1/2 hour per shirt. 
Peplum top: $15 + $10 for the fringe 
Dress: $4.00 + $15 for fringe (I messed up so I had to rip out some and redo it! Warning: if you're using fringe be careful! It's hard to rip out and redo).
