How Do You Cut the Sleeves Off of a T-Shirt?

To cut the sleeves off a T-shirt, turn the shirt inside out, rotate the sleeves, and cut along the inside edge of the seam. To ensure an even line, use chalk to draw a line to cut along.

  1. Turn the shirt inside out

    Turn the shirt inside out so the seams are visible. Use a piece of chalk to draw a line along the inside edge of the seam.

  2. Rotate and cut the sleeves

    Hold the shirt in your hand, and rotate the sleeves as you cut. Laying the shirt flat makes it difficult to see where you’re cutting.

  3. Check for uneven edges

    Turn the shirt right-side out, and check for jagged edges. Cut away any unruly pieces.
