    -Take the shirt you want to use and measure how long you want the section under the bust to be.
    -Mark this length out with Chalk.
    -Measure the length around your torso, (under your bust) and divide that measurement in 1/2 and mark this at the top of the section you are going to cut. (mark it out in the center)
    -Draw a diagnal line from the top of the measurement to the bottom of the shirt.
    (Note the red section)

Way cute! I love how it's bigger at the bottom, so it has a sort of babydoll shape to it. I've got a couple baggy shirts sitting around, and I can't wait to try it!!
