Can I cut the bottom of my t-shirt?
You want the shirt to be completely straight and wrinkle free for a perfect cut. Draw a line across the bottom of the shirt with tailor chalk. This will be your cutting line, so make sure the shirt is not too long or too short. Use a ruler to measure from the hem to the line in several different places.
What happens if you cut a cotton shirt?
T-shirts are made of cotton that typically will fray just a little. It does not unravel, but does need extra care because not only will fraying occur if you cut your T-shirt, but the ends may curl also. Remember that during the washing and drying process, T-shirts get the roughest handling.
