Full Answer

This project only requires a pair of scissors and a sweatshirt, and is great to do for an '80s-themed party, or just as a fashion statement.

Step 1: Prepare the sweatshirt

Pre-wash and dry the sweatshirt to make sure it won't shrink later.

Step 2: Mark the neckline

Spread the sweatshirt out flat, and use a washable fabric marking pen or tailor's chalk to mark about 1-inch in from the stitching on the sweatshirt's collar.

Step 3: Cut the neckline

Use sharp scissors to cut inside the marked line.

Try it on and adjust

Put the sweatshirt on and see if the neckline falls off the shoulder as desired. If a deeper cut is needed, repeat these steps to get the desired look.
