Personally these days I just like a nice sleeveless vest top - gone are the days of cutting my t-shirts so you can pratically see the entire side of my body.
When cutting off the sleeves there are 2 ways you can go about it - by cutting either before or after the seams. For me, I love the worn, flimsy look - its pretty much on loads of summer vests these days and you can create this look for £0.
What you'll need is simple, a steady hand and a pair of scissors.
The one on the left is the seam left in and the right one without on the shoulders
Purely for purpose of this post - I cut each sleeve before or on the seam to show you the difference - however, deciding to cut before the seam made for a messy job. However on both cuts, some errors like these were made....
These can just be cut out afterwards but keep an eye on the shape of the sleeve to make sure you dont get chop happy!
These are the results from both kinds of cuts...
I've been doing this for a while now (since I was 18? so for like nearly 5 years) an for some reason I used to be better at it haha! Heres some of my others....
So there you go - a summary of how to cut off the sleeves for an on trend vest! I know its simple and I've not worded it amazingly but if you have any questions at all - please leave them at the bottom and I'll get back to you!!!
Have you ever got scissor happy on clothing??? What transformations have you created?
