Cut up an old tee shirt to look like you just stepped out of the 80s!
First, the Neck : Mark 2–3 inches (5.1–7.6 cm) from the neckline all around the neck, following its natural shape.iron on transfers for t shirts
With sharp scissors, follow the basic neckline shape and cut a new, larger hole, using your marks and guidelines. (Remember to cut on the outside of your marks so those don’t remain on the shirt)
Next, the Sleeves : Fold the shirt perfectly in half, matching up the sleeve stitching both on top and bottom.
Holding both sleeves together, follow the angle of the sleeve edge, cutting off 2–4 inches (5.1–10.2 cm), depending on desired sleeve length.
Finally, the details : For a short shirt, in true “Flash Dance” style, feel free to cut an additional 6–8 inches (15.2–20.3 cm) off the length of the tee OR…
Instead of making it short, create some custom fringe. Lay the shirt out perfectly flat. Cut the side of the tee up each edge, stopping where the sleeve meets the body of the tee. Biker Flames iron on decals
Then snip small 2″ cuts (about 0.5″ apart from each other) down both the front and back of each side edge. Make sure there are the same number of snips on each side.
Tie the pieces together to create a side fringe on the shirt. Now repeat on the other side.
Now ROCK ON in your totally rad custom 80s-tee-shirts
Make sure not to cut too much up the shirt to the sleeve, because the shirt will rip if you do so.
Be careful with scissors!
