I bought a sweatshirt at goodwill today thats blue without a hood, and would be perfect for one of those, but I have no idea how to do it! Please help! Smiley

Do you need to alter anything besides the neckline?  I'd say try it on and mark with tailor's chalk (or a pen or a Sharpie or something) about how far out on the shoulders/how far down in the front/back you want the cuts to be, then fold it in half so the neckline is even and chop away.  In Generation T there's a tutorial for an off-the-shoulder T-shirt, and it is basically just cutting off the top.

Yeah, it fits great, i just want it off the shoulder. So yes, just the neckline. What's Generation T? Any link would be greatly appreciated :]

Just chop off the neck and go!  As a ballet dancer, I used to make tons of off-the-shoulder sweatshirts and tees.  Part of their charm is their imperfection.  The fabric doesn't need to be finished in any way (it won't run), so all you need to do is cut and wear.

A canoe shape cut is ideal. You'll find that when you cut a shirt's neckline in a circular cut the sleeves won't really be off the shoulder. But cutting it in a \______/ shape works wonderfully. Try it out with a scrap t-shirt.~ Smiley

Okay, thanks for the help! I'm glad I don't have to finish it in any way. Canoe shape, I got this! Thanks for all the help!
