Hello beautiful! I’ve been excited to share this off shoulder top with you for awhile. It’s crazy-simple to make (you can bust out this project in less than thirty minutes) and always garners compliments. That’s the best of both worlds right?
I love the draped, feminine look of this lace top. You’ll be so surprised to learn just how quick it is to make! I loved making it out of a white lace because it added a gorgeous, delicate drape and texture to whatever you decide to wear it with.
Once you’ve made this off shoulder top once, you’ll probably want to make it out of plaid, jersey, and more! It’s such a versatile pattern and can be styled so many ways. If it’s made of a heavier fabric, it makes an excellent layering piece as fall rolls in as well.

How To Make An Off Shoulder Top
- Start out by laying your fabric out flat on a table.
- Fold your fabric in half hamburger style. The fold-line will become the shoulder seam of your new shirt as pictured below.
- Use sewing pins to pin from the bottom edge of your fabric all the way up. Leave an 8″ space open for your arm holes.
- Sew along your pinned edge as pictured in the image below.
- Lastly, it’s time to create your neckline! To make your top an “off-shoulder” one, just cut a wider neckline so it drapes off one shoulder. Fold your fabric in half to fine the center and then cut your neckline open along the fold line. Mine is cut open 22″ but you can cut it a little, try your new shirt on, and then cut more if you prefer.
- Finish any raw edges if you like. For lace, I used some basic Fold-Over Elastic to encase the raw edge and use a straight stitch on my basic sewing machine.
Wasn’t that easy? Seriously, this is the easiest shirt tutorial I may have ever done! Other simple tutorials have been the DIY Tube Dress, this Draped Top, and This Criss-Cross Crop Top. Be sure to check them out and let me know what you think!
