How To: DIY Backless Top
Take your measurements.
1
If you have a top like this you can place it on top of your fabric and just trace it. If you don’t have then just follow the next step.
2
Place the fabric right sides together. Width is 38cm and the length is 26cm. Cut the fabric.
3
From the side make a mark at 7cm and from the upper edge make a mark at 9cm. Connect the marks and cut.
4
Cut 4 rectangles. The length is 8cm and the width is 4cm. Fold the fabric towards the center and fold again to hide the raw edges. Pin and sew.
5
Cut two long strips. The width is 4cm and the length is 170cm or longer. Fold towards the center and fold again to hide the raw edges. Pin & sew.
6
Sandwich the strap in between the fabric and pin them. Sew the upper and lower edge. Do not sew the side edges yet.
7
Turn the top right side out. Fold about 1cm to hide the raw edges and pin them. Add the loops, pin and then sew.
8
For the darts. Make a mark at 7cm. From that mark make two marks about 1cm. From the side edge make a mark at 6cm then connect the marks. Pin and sew.
9
Loop the straps.

Your backless top is now ready!
