1. Find an old shirt, a pair of scissors, and a twelve-inch ruler.
2. Lay the t-shirt out flat on a hard surface. Make sure to smooth out any bumps for that can cause the shirt to come out raggedy.
3. This step is optional. if you desire, you can cut of sleeves by cutting right behind the hem of the sleeve and the shoulder. Avoid small and choppy strokes, for this may cause the line to become ridged. instead cut with long strokes and take your time.
4. Now turn the shirt so that the back is facing up is not already so. pull the shirt from the bottom hem and the collar and fold. You should see half of the shirt facing to you, so only one arm hole is able to be seen. the arm holes should be even with each other so your are able to see through both holes,
5. Fold so the shirt is completely flat and measure across the span of half the shirt to four inches and make a mark with a pen. From there you should start to cut to that line.
6. Continue down the shirt leaving about two inches between each incision.
7. Lastly, you want to pull each piece of fabric between each cut so the ends roll to meet each others.
This look is for a bright summer day. Always wear a tank top or bandeau underneath.
