So what if you really like a designer cropped denim top but you don't wanna spend that much of money? You make one yourself. Old jeans are the best cause they have a naturally faded color and the fabric has turned all soft which makes it comfy to wear.
Just start playing with the fabric, drape yourself into it in all different ways and figure out what suits you best. You can make it all the way you like it, wide, with straps, crossed over etc
Left overs.....? The perfect denimshorts :-)
