diy faux leather top

DIY shirt, Honey Punch Shorts, Zara heels

I had extra faux leather left over from the bucket bag that I made so I figured I'd give a leather shirt a try. This project is really easy because there isn't much to it. It's basically just two large squares!

You will need:
  1. Faux leather
  2. Sewing machine with leather needles
  3. Scissors


You can trace an over-sized shirt that you have or you can just copy the shape that I have going here. You can see that it is very minimal, just two pieces of faux leather cut the same but the neck line is further down in the front. Also make the top slanted instead of straight across.


Sew with right sides together. Don't forget to leave an opening for the arms! I made my pretty large because this fabric doesn't stretch, so you need room to take it on and off. Also, if you didn't make the neck opening wide enough you can cut a small opening in the back so your head can fit through.


It's faux leather, so no need to hem! Happy sewing~
