Do you have a crop top you wish was longer? Are you a long-waisted woman with lots of short shirts? This tutorial to Lengthen a Too Short Top is a quick, simple and stylish solution that takes under 30 minutes. Go on, resurrect that cropped tee! This DIY refashion will show you how to tailor a shirt to fit you perfectly. Even better, this upcycled clothing pattern can be used to add some color to an otherwise drab shirt, because the extra length in this refashion comes from a band of fabric added to the middle.
