Measuring tape or ruler
Marking pen or chalk
First thing you'll need is a pair of sharp scissors—ones for fabric specifically are the best, but as long as they're sharp, they'll do the trick. A pen or chalk also comes in handy to make marks on your clothing, or if you want, you can mostly eyeball it like we did. Plus, if it’s a little off don’t stress it makes it unique right?
You can make it as cropped as you want! Time to have some fun! Let's get started...
Step 1: Lay shirt on a flat surface and smooth it out completely.
Step 2: Measure out where you want it the new hem to hit. Make sure you try the shirt on beforehand. Tip: Leave the shirt a little longer than you want it to be to ensure that you like the length. You can always make it shorter, but you can’t make it longer. (Coming from our own experience ha ha, we’ve got you covered).
Step 3: Take a measuring tape or ruler and use a pen or chalk to mark on each side so you know you're cutting it straight.
Step 4: Start cutting on one side and make sure you're in line with your other mark.
Step 5: FINISHED and now you have the perfect little cropped tee!
