how to cut a sweatshirt off the shoulder

As the weather gets warmer, we start to see more skin. One trend that is popular for both men and women is the cut-off sweatshirt. This style is easy to achieve and can be done with any type of sweatshirt. In this blog post, we will show you how to cut a sweatshirt off the shoulder step-by-step.

How to cut a sweatshirt off the shoulder

Assuming you would like tips on how to make a shoulder-less sweatshirt:

1. Choose a comfortable sweatshirt and the right size. If the sweatshirt is too big, it will be difficult to make it look good without shoulders. If it’s too small, it will be uncomfortable to wear.

2. Cut off the bottom hem of the sweatshirt. This will give you a clean line to work with and make sure the raw edge doesn’t show when you wear it.

3. Decide how low you want the neckline to be. This is entirely up to personal preference but keep in mind that if it’s too low, your bra may show.

4. Using scissors or a rotary cutter, carefully cut along the chosen neckline. Go slowly and take your time to get a straight line.

5. Once the neckline is cut, try on the sweatshirt to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Trim off any loose threads and you’re done!

How to make a no-sew sweatshirt

Assuming you already have a sweatshirt:

1. Find where you want to cut the shoulder off. This will be the new sleeve seam. Place a piece of tape or a safety pin at this spot.

2. Measure down from the sleeve seam about 3”-4” and make another mark with tape or a safety pin. This will be the bottom of your new “sleeve” hole.

3. Cut along the bottom line you just made, being careful not to cut into the body of the sweatshirt. Try on the sweatshirt to check the placement of your new sleeve holes. Make any necessary adjustments before moving on to step 4.

4. Once you’re happy with the placement of your new sleeve holes, it’s time to finish them off so they don’t unravel. You can do this by either sewing a zigzag stitch around the raw edge or by using a product like Fray Check or Liquid Stitch

How to make a cropped sweatshirt

Assuming you already have a sweatshirt:

1. Lay the sweatshirt flat on a table or other surface. If it is wrinkle, smooth it out with your hands.

2. Decide how much of the shoulder you want to cut off. For a traditional “off the shoulder” look, aim to cut about 2-3 inches below the armpit seam. But feel free to make it as cropped as you like!

3. Using sharp scissors, cut along the entire length of the shoulder that you want to remove.

4. Once both shoulders are cut, try on the sweatshirt to see if you like the fit and crop. If not, you can always trim more off.

2. Next, take a sharp knife or scissors and cut along the line you’ve created. Be careful not to cut too deeply – you just want to make a small slit in the fabric.

3. Once the slit is cut, try on the sweatshirt to make sure it looks how you want it to. If everything looks good, you’re done! enjoy your new edgy style.

How to style a cut-off sweatshirt

Assuming you already have a sweatshirt and it fits well, lay it flat on a cutting surface. If the bottom of the sweatshirt is not even, fold it up so that it is. Next, use a ruler or measuring tape to find the center of the neckline and mark it with chalk or a fabric pen.

Then, measure down about two inches from the center necklinemark and make another mark. From this second mark, measure out 1 1/2 inches on each side and make two more marks (for a total of four marks on the shirt). Connect these marks with a curved line to create the new neckline.

Now it’s time to cut! Be sure to use sharp scissors and cut along the lines you just drew. Once you’ve cut off the excess fabric, turn the shirt right-side out and try it on. If you’re happy with how it looks, congratulations! You’ve successfully styled a cut-off sweatshirt.
