  • T-Shirt
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape/Ruler
  • Tape (Masking or Painters

Step 1: Cut

Cut off the bottom hem of the shirt.

Don't worry if it is messy!

Step 2: Create a Guide

Flip the shirt so it is face down.

Use the measuring tape or ruler to measure 4 - 5 inches (10 - 12 cm) up from the bottom and tape across the shirt in a straight line.

Step 3: Cut Again

Cut up each side of the shirt until you reach your taped guide.

On the backside only, cut horizontally across the guide. This will leave you with a front flap.

Turn the shirt over, face-up, and mark the bottom center of the now "shirt-flap".

Starting from the center, cut diagonally toward each side of the shirt (where your original guide was) so that your flap is now a "V" shape.

Step 4: Complete

Enjoy your new, more stylish, Front Knot Crop Top!
