Step 2: Mark Shape

Use your ruler and colored pencil to mark the square shape at the front of the shirt. The lines should be made just slightly outside of the existing neckline.

Step 3: Cut

Cut along the lines on the front to create the square neckline. Then, cut straight across the back right under the neckline to remove that strip of material.

Step 4: Add Ruche Effect

Pinch the material into tiny folds at the center of the neckline in the front. Then secure the folds together using your needle and thread to create the ruched/sweetheart neckline effect.

Step 5: All Done!

It's that easy! In just a few minutes, you've turned a regular shirt into a trendier top that will add some spice to any outfit.

    Will the material fray along the cut edges?
