Step 3

Draw a line with a permanent marker down the side of the shirt beginning at the seam underneath the sleeve. Cutting on this line will allow the sides of the shirt to open. Make the line as long as the opening you would like on the side of the shirt.

Step 4

Cut off the sleeve using the scissors. Follow the seam of the sleeve and cut in a circular motion. Leaving the shirt like this allows for smaller openings on the sides of the shirt.
