I have seen in a few shops, t-shirts with unusual cut outs in them, Steph from The Fashion Citizen was wearing one in her latest video and I thought it looked so cool and shows skin in an unexpected place! I loved this one from asos especially, but unfortunately its sold out, so I thought I would make my own and show you how to too.
1; Try your t-shirt on and mark with chalk or a pencil where your elbows are.
2; Measure across the width of the sleeve and how ever long it is half it, e.g mine was 10cm wide so I halved to 5, this will let you know how big to make your template.
3; Cut out your template, mine was 5cm on each side, I went for a square shape and turned it on its side to create a diamond cut out on the elbow and draw around it.
4; Neatly cut out the shape on your t-shirt.
5; You should be left with a hole in the sleeve of your shirt, try it on again and you're done.
Tip; this works best on a thick t-shirt as it is less likely to fray and stretch the hole you cut, if you're super sewing savvy you could make a seam around the edge to stop this happening.
