Hi, I'm Bridgett Artise, and I'm owner, author and designer of Born Again Vintage, and today we're at Born Again Vintage the Collective in Montclair, New Jersey, and I'm gonna show you how to make the perfect crop top. First you have a T-shirt, and you cut the T-shirt at the point you want the shirt to stop. So first of course you have to try the shirt on. Okay, you have two options. You could cut with fringes, or you could cut without fringes. If you're cutting with fringes, you're going to cut the shirt a little lower than where you would want it to fall. And if you do cut it with the fringes, you cut it straight across to cut the T-shirt off, then you start cutting the fringes. It doesn't matter how high or low they are, or at what the distance they are between each, you just kind of cut how you want to cut. And once you cut the fringes all the way across, then you pull, and this gives the fringes a little length, and makes them a little bit better, or fall better. And once you do that, you have your perfect crop top.
