How to CROP TOP steps:
1. Start with any tee or sweatshirt.
2. Find where you want to cut off at the bottom of the shirt. Use your tailors chalk to mark off a line to cut.
3. Against a hard surface roll your cutter on the line you made. Make sure to press firmly to cut the front and back of the shirt.
4. Pull and stretch the cut bottom. This helps prevent the crop from fraying or rolling up.
