Step 2: Trace & Cut Shoulder Outlines

Take the folded sheet of paper and line it up on top of one shoulder, folding the corners to make sure the shape is correct. Then take a pencil and draw a curved line that will be later be cut out to make the cold shoulder. Once you've drawn the shape on the paper, cut it out.

Step 3: Place Paper & Cut Shoulders

Clip or pin the paper patterns onto each shoulder, then cut along the edge. Be sure to cut just inside of the pattern's edge, as you'll be later folding and gluing the fabric around the holes.

Step 4: Cut Crotch Area

Clip or pin the underwear/bikini bottoms/etc. onto the bottom of the shirt and cut out the leg holes.

Step 5: Attach Snaps

Using the snap fastener kit, secure snaps onto the ends of both sides of the crotch area (see video for details on how to use the kit).

Step 6: Glue & Fold Around Shoulder Holes

Turn the shirt inside-out and lightly dab fabric glue along the edge of the shoulder holes. Then fold the edges down and smooth them out.

Step 7: All Done!

    now I know why fabric glue never worked for me. I was using too much. Thanks

    No problem! This fabric glue is awesome for binding. It's a bit runny, though, so I can't use too much. I actually think a thicker glue would be better for folding edges like this. :)
