  1. Mark lines to cut the shirt

    Use chalk or a pen to mark a line one inch away from each shoulder seam, collar seam and below the armpit seam.

    Use scissors to cut from the marks at the armpit seams to the marks at the shoulder seams. Cut along the lines for the bottom seam and the collar seam.
