    Measure under your bust, cut that number in half, and center it over your shirt graphic. Cut a rectangle that wide, and as long as you'd like, out of the front piece of your shirt.

    Remember that bottom piece from the first step? Cut the loop open, and center it over your lower piece. Put right sides together, making sure to line up the raw edges. Sew from one side seam to the other.
