1. Lay your shirt of choice on a flat surface (we used the floor) make sure it is even. Start with chopping off the bottom hem. Be careful not to cut too much—you can always cut more if need be. Depending on how cropped you want your shirt to be, cut accordingly. If you want to get fancy you can always get a white pencil to mark where you want to cut. If you have a steady hand, try free-handing it. Cut in an upturned fashion, sort of like a smile.
2. Next come the sleeves. Cut a little more than half of the outer section of the sleeve off, going in a slanted angle towards the hem. (Like a piece of pizza)
3. There are many variations you can try for extra flare. You may want to considering cutting the top of the shirt to make more of an off the shoulder boatneck shape.
Hit the break for directions on two more techniques!
1. For bigger athletic shirts, turning them into tanks is ideal for game day. Start by cutting the sleeves. Cut on the inside of the hem just an inch or two from the sleeve. It should curve slightly outward.
2. Next, for that off the shoulder look, cut along the top of the tee starting just outside the neck and going in a u-shape towards the other side.
3. Lastly, cut the bottom hem off to your desired crop length.
1. Follow the same directions as the upturned crop, except cut in a downturned style similar to a rainbow.
2. Next come the sleeves. Cut a little more than half of the outer section of the sleeve off, going in a slanted angle towards the hem.
3. Crop shirts and high-waisted shorts go together like pb + j. Wear yours with love for the rest of summer!
*Note: To avoid shrinking your perfectly cut tee, lay flat to dry after washing.
