It's what you've been waiting for...  Wink  Please don't sell my design or call it your own.  Thanks!

:::::   WRAP TOP TUTORIAL   :::::


1. Start with an oversized T-shirt.  Cut it off right beneath the sleeves.  (If you'd rather, sew a tube of fabric big enough to fit very loosely around you, right sides together.)

2. Cut a length of elastic, enough to fit snugly around your ribcage plus 2 inches.  Sew a casing at the top of your shirt (wrong sides together) to fit the elastic in, leaving a couple inches open.  Feed the elastic through the casing, stitch the ends of the elastic together, and stitch the casing shut.  You should have what looks like a very simple little skirt.

3. Measure all the way around your chest, then cut a rectangular strip of fabric.  It should be about 2 and a half times your chest measurement in length.  For width, estimate how wide you want the upper band of your top to be, double it and add an inch for seam allowance.  (Mine was 11 inches, for a 5-inch wide band in the finished product.)

5. Fold the rectangle right sides together, and sew.  Turn it right side out, fold in the ends, and stitch them shut.  Iron the upper band if it needs it.

6. Lay the band out smoothly and lay the skirt-looking part in the center of it, lining up the bottom of the band with the bottom of the elastic casing.  Pin at each side and stitch the two parts together.  This should be an inch or less of stitching on either side.  You're done sewing!


1. Pull it on, with the elastic right under your chest and the band smooth across your back.

2. Pull one end of the band around across that side of your chest.

3. While holding the first end (that is, if you're not trying to take pictures!), wrap the other end of the upper band across the other side of your chest.

4.  Pull both ends snugly and tie in a knot behind your back.  I tried to take a pic of this...  Tongue hopefully you get the idea.

5.  Take a pic of your very own wrap top and post it here!  Smiley



Smile like you mean it, and let yourself let go.

I keep on seeing on the catwalk canvas straps of a contrasting colour for example black, and that way it wouldn't really ruin the shape of the top and you'd be totally on the trend right now AND you can always take them off if you want to change it up!!
