Step 2: Mark Spots
Use the pencil to mark a spot under the sleeve you plan on cutting off. Then mark a spot slightly above the belly button that will be the point of the triangular cut-out.
Step 3: Cut Sleeve & Slit
Cut one sleeve off from the spot you marked up to the other shoulder. Then cut a triangular shape out of both layers of the shirt that connects at the point you marked with the pencil.
Next, cut the bottom side open.
Step 4: Cut Sleeve
Cut the removed sleeve off of the collar, and cut the sleeve open along the seam. Then cut the material the long way to create two strips and stretch them out.
Step 5: Attach Strips & Create Tie
Tie each strip to each layer of the shirt at the bottom of the triangular cut out. Trim the excess material and tie the two strips in a bow to disguise any bulkiness from the knots.
There you have it! Your basic long sleeve shirt is now a trendy one shoulder cut-out top. Let me know if you try it out for yourself!
