scissors (i have fabric scissors but i didn’t use them for this diy since i want the more distressed, grungy look)
time: 15 minutes
find a t shirt you want to cut
fold the hem of the shirt inward to determine how short you want it
make an incision a little lower than your waist because you can always cut it shorter if you want but you can’t cut it longer
from the incision you’ve made, cut a straight line across the front of the shirt, and arch downward in the back
again, you can always cut it shorter so give yourself plenty of room
then cut off the sleeves at the seam
how thick or thin you want the width of the sleeves to be is up to you!
if you want them thinner, angle your scissors up with the arm holes, and cut diagonally towards the collar
make an incision below the collar and cut it off
you can then use your own discretion to cut further into a scoop or v neck
now it’s ready to wear!
notes: this is a very simple diy, but it’s still pretty easy to make some wrong cuts. i would recommend trying this out on a t shirt you don’t care about before you do this to your favorite vintage band tee.
