Have a lot of tees, and need a cool and easy way to cut them? Here’s a cool way to update a tee into a breezy cut sleeve! This look is perfect to wear at any upcoming festivals, or if you’re going away on spring break.
What you’ll need:
Galaxy Flying Pig Scoop
- At the top of the shirt, make a mark about two inches from the neck seam. Do the same on the other side of the neck.
- Measure four to five inches from the bottom of both armholes, and make a mark with your chalk.
- Now it’s time to start cutting your shirt! You can try to cut the front and the back at the same time, but the easiest way is to cut the front, and then use it as a guide to cut out the back. Start cutting along the top of the sleeve, and cut to the mark you made at the very top. Then, cut down the front of the shirt to the mark you made on the side. Flip the shirt over, and cut down the back. Do the same to the other side of the shirt. By the end of this step, you should have a muscle tank!
- Cut down both sides of the shirt.
- Tuck the bottom edges of the shirt inside. This will make it easier to tie it in the next step.
- Double knot both sides of the shirt.
- It’s okay if you accidentally cut uneven edges! To smooth them out, tug lightly at the shirt. The edges should curl inwards, making the sides look smoother.
- To make sure it fits out perfectly, try the shirt on after every step.
- If you want a tighter or looser fit at the bottom, put the shirt on first before tying it.
- This look is perfect for layering! Wear a cute bandeau underneath, or wear it to the beach as a cover up.
