How do you cut and stitch a shirt?
Sew a straight stitch down the entire right side of the shirt, working from the tip of the underarm seam straight down to the bottom opening. Repeat on the left side of the shirt when finished. Pin down the sleeves and sides before stitching them together; otherwise, the material may shift as you work.
Can you cut a shirt with regular scissors?
If you can’t get fabric scissors, you can use regular scissors. Just be warned that fabric scissors are best because they’re heavy and extra sharp, which makes them cut through fabric like a hot knife on butter (well, not quite).
