Yes You Can Make Your Own Crop Top
B + C fans are you ready to take your sewing skills to the next level? In Sewing 101 we showed you how to make a simple maxi skirt from jersey fabric and now its time to create a matching cotton crop top. In this tutorial we will show you how to measure and create your own pattern that will fit perfectly to your bodys curves. Once youve created a pattern you can keep reusing it to create more crop tops out of different fabrics.
Just like the DIY skort, we suggest you read through the steps a couple times before starting the project. It also helps to do a test run on scrap fabric before cutting into your hero piece I created two test run pieces and altered my pattern slightly so my final crop top would be perfect. We cant wait to see what you create!
marker or pen
1. Grab the measurements of your bust, waist, back and length from your shoulder to underarm. Jot these down on a piece of paper for reference.
2. Divide your waist measurement by four and then add 2.5 inches create two rectangles on your craft paper that measure the height of your back measurement and the width of your waist/four + 2.5.
3. Mark your underarm measurement in the center of the top line of the rectangle. Make a dotted line in each rectangle.
7. Cut out your pattern from the craft paper, fold your fabric in half and pin the pattern in place. Make sure you pin the U-shaped curve side of the pattern to the edge of the fold.

Pathway Flow First Then To Map Layout Boundaries
In this first method you start off with a basic path flow. I’ve mentioned this technique before in this tutorial.
Use this method when you have an idea of what your map is going to play like and you have already thought about the layout but you are not clear on all the details.
Works best when:
- You have an idea for your map
- You have thought about the layout
- You have a rough idea of pathways, choke points, spawn points, bombsite/hostage rescue locations
- Use of distance for gameplay style options
Start with drawing simple lines to define main pathways of the map.
Include connecting pathways, label choke points, and place hostage rescue or bomb site locations:
If you are creating a DE map, start with T side first. Since Ts are the attacking team, they will need to arrive at the bomb site. CTs only have to defend it.
If you are creating a CT map, start with CT side first. Due to CTs are now the attacking team and Ts only have to defend.
Keep pathway layout extremely simple. Don’t design any boundaries. Focus on player paths for both teams.
Once you figure out main pathways, grab another piece of paper and place it on top. Use the pathway flow as a guideline to begin drawing more complete layout of the map:
Continue drawing until you know how you figure out the rest of the layout Ã¢â¬â boundaries of the map, sight lines, CT/T spawn points, bombsite or hostage locations, choke points, connected routes and alternate routes.

They also have lots of other retailers on there but I pretty much only use the Joann rebates.
