A few snips away to a fabulous sheer top
I've been eyeing all the sheer tops and skirts I've been seeing in magazines and all over the runway. After a little bit of research on Pinterest, I was inspired to make this DIY Sheer (Pantyhose) Top, I admit, I'm not the first to try this!

This honestly took me less than 5 minutes, only a couple of snips with my scissors and the results were totally unexpected!

I honestly LOVE the way this crop sheer top turned out and I can think of a few other versions - polka dots? Please Pin and share with others!
