Hi, I'm Kena with The Fashion Camp. I'm here at the beautiful design studio, 400 Brannan in San Francisco. Today, we're going to take an old T-shirt and make it into an off-the-shoulder T-shirt. Off-the-shoulder T-shirts are great to wear with jeans, skirts or whatever else you fancy. To create the off-the-shoulder look we're first going to cut the binding off the sleeves. This will give it a more modern feel. Be sure to cut in a straight line so your sleeve edge is nice and straight. Now we're ready to cut the neck off to create our off-the-shoulder look. We want to keep this shoulder or if you want, it's up to you, you can either keep the left or the right. So I'm going to start here and we're just going to simply cut as close to the neckline as possible, just on one side though. I'm going to keep cutting all the way around and when you get to here you're actually going to bring out your scissors and you're going to cut further to the point of this shoulder. This is what's going to create that one dropped shoulder look. Make sure to leave one shoulder intact. Here you see my right shoulder has not been cut off. Here we have our fun and sassy off the shoulder shirt. It's perfect to rock with a pair of skinny jeans, your favorite leather skirt. I'm Kena with The Fashion Camp at 440 Brannan in San Francisco.
