Instructions

  1. How to cut-up a top. Cut Out Neckline Tee - Step 1 1

    Gather your materials.

  2. How to cut-up a top. Cut Out Neckline Tee - Step 2 2

    Create two small pattern pieces to dictate the shape of your cut-outs on cardstock. It can be arbitrary, but check the neckline you're dealing with to see what shape works best.

  3. How to cut-up a top. Cut Out Neckline Tee - Step 3 3

    Lay pattern pieces down on Tee, creating a motif. Start from the center of the neckline and trace off with something wash-able. Doing this from the inside of the shirt to avoid marking it permanently is also a good idea.

  4. How to cut-up a top. Cut Out Neckline Tee - Step 4 4

    Continue until you've achieved your desired motif. We like rotating the two shapes along the contour of the neckline to give it some geometric allure.




  5. How to cut-up a top. Cut Out Neckline Tee - Step 5 5

    Once your motif is traced off, carefully cut out your shapes.

  6. How to cut-up a top. Cut Out Neckline Tee - Step 6 6

    Don't stress the garment too much once you've made some holes in it - it will be delicate unless you're working with very thick material or some sort of reinforcement.
