DIY: Getting the perfectly cut Off-the-Shoulder T-Shirt everytime

Chinese New Year has come and gone. In our preparation for the celebrations and festivities, I cleared out my wardrobe and some clutter around the house. There were items I gave away or threw out, some items were donated to the Salvation Army while others I was hoping to recycle or upcycle especially clothes which did not quite fit my current style. 

Since the 90s, I have always loved the off-the-shoulder cropped top look. And with the revival of all things retro and vintage, the off-the-shoulder cropped top look has found its way back into current trends. I decided to exploit the current trend and cut up some old t-shirts to give them a new look.

Cutting clothes can sometimes be quite a hit-and-miss kind of affair especially if one is somewhat clipper challenged like me. So out of pure randomness, I googled to see if I could get help with cutting up my tees. I found  this Youtube video extremely helpful in getting the perfectly measured and cut Off-the-Shoulder T-shirt made by Youtuber Petite Pear Style (

I followed her DIY steps and got great results! Here’s a photo of my first attempt at the DIY Off-the-Shoulder T-Shirt. It does look lower than I had initially expected it to be but I think it was a good  first attempt nonetheless!
