DIY Off-Shoulder Top - off the shoulder sweatshirt modeled by the makerI was looking to buy an off-shoulder sweatshirt when I noticed that most of them cost $10 to $15 more than their pre-cut counterparts. There is a super simple way to cut them to make them hang off your shoulder just right. Here's how to do it.


Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 top
  • scissors
DIY Off-Shoulder Top - sweatshirt


  1. Grab the top from the collar/neckband and cut uniformly right outside the thread. Cut carefully and make sure there are no zig-zags or crookedness.
  2. DIY Off-Shoulder Top - carefully cut off the neck band just outside of the stitching
  3. Don't discard this collar. Use it to tie large things up. I removed the tag and wear it in my hair as a high-ponytail holder. (I love it!) Try on the top. If you want it to fall off your shoulder more, just pull the cut neck area horizontally to stretch it open more. No need to cut again.
  4. DIY Off-Shoulder Top - save the neckband for other uses, the neck can be stretched a bit if you want it to hang more off your shoulder
