Hi, this is Mo of Mo West Creations. Today, I'm going to show you how to knot up your shirt along the side. First thing you want to do, is take your shirt and lay it out flat. Make sure you have the side seams clear of any tags, cut those out, and no wrinkles along the sides, smooth side seams. Next thing you want to do, is line up your side seams, fold it in half, again, make sure that it's smooth on all the levels. You want to make sure you try on your shirt before you do this, so you can get an idea of how much smaller you want it. This one was just a little bit too big, so I'm not going to make huge cuts in the sides. But if your shirt is way too big for you, then you want to make pretty long cuts int he sides. So, we have our sides lined up, you take your ruler and just give yourself about two inches from the side, starting at the armpit. Make little dots every inch, check again before you cut, make sure everything is smooth and lined up properly and then, you can cut. Just cut straight across from the dot on the edge to the dot on the inside, through both layers of your shirt. Make sure it stays smooth and straight. Alright, so you could leave it like this and you'll just have lines up the sides of your shirt, cut lines. But we want to tie them to make it a little tighter and cute. So, give them a pull, this is important in all t-shirt cutting, you want to do that on both sides. And then, go through and cut right where the seam is, on all of them. Then, once you've done that on both sides, what I like to do is, try it on and just tie each one up as tight or loose as you need it. And then, you'll have a perfectly fitting custom made, DIY tie-up-the-side t-shirt. This has been Mo of Mo West Creations, teaching you how to tie your shirt up the side, ciao.
