How to cut your t-shirt (80's style)

I started cutting my t-shirts about 7 years ago...I 'm not sure if it was in style, but then again, I've never cared about what was "in style", I just cared about what I liked to wear!

I like turning a "not so cute", t-shirt, into a cute "80's" style off the shoulder t-shirt, with a white tank top underneath...here's how to do it!

So here's a fun video where I show you how to cut an "80's style shirt" and my style inspiration, and a quick tour of my old closet! (how I miss this closet, my new closet isn't even as big as a door, it now looks like I sleep in my closet! ha ha ha


What you need:
t-shirt
very sharp scissors (fabric scissors are best, I like Fiskars)

let's get ready to have some fashion fun! And remember: 
you don't wear a trend, you make one by wearing what you love!
wear what you love...makes you happy...and makes you feel comfortable!
type with love and fashion boldness, your kandee

I did that once and my mum almost killed me xD But it looks so cool, I could do that with every shirt! Thank you so much, Kandee :-*

You are so amazing and funny. Can't you imagine how much you make me smile, when i'm watching your's videos, my mom asks: "what are you laugh?" and I answer: "Just watching a video so funny!"
I can't live without your blog and videos anymore! I'm just 17 and don't have too much to worry...

Kandee, I really liked the black shirt you wore in your "momshell" video. Can you do a tutorial on how you cut that shirt? PLEASE!?

sgardner said...

I loved all your fashion videos!! I think you should do more! This t-shirt video is actually how I stumbled upon you. Then I saw all the make up videos and I to am a MAC junkie, so we were a perfect fit.

Hey Kandee!
I love you and your videos so much, you are such an inspiering person! I hope you someday will come and visit us in Nroway, that would be so much fun! Even though it's sooo cold up here :(

Anyway, I was wondering if you could make a video about makeup for blue and grey eyes? Some tricks and tips maybe?

Take care, Kandee! Hugs from Maria (http://iiaaa.blogg.no)

This was the first video I ever saw from Kandee! Her awesome hair and bright yellow shirt totally just hooked me into it and I haven't stopped since. Love you Kandee, and all that you do!

Zizzi said...

Love this post! Now I must go to town tomorrow and buy a t-shirt to cut! Or perhaps I just go to my closet and look if I have any t-shirts there. I know I have one or two t-shirts that I LOVE, but they are a little bit too tight and too small. I DON'T want to throw them away, do you have any idea what I can make from them? Love from Sweden!

sarah.fouad said...

This was the first video I ever saw of yours and the first youtube 'beauty' video I saw ever. It got me hooked! Your still my favorite :)

stephanie said...

i would love to have tha much jewelery!

Alina Bourian said...

Thanks Kandee. I've just cut mine, and it looks nice indeed. Though i found I made the hole too big, so next time I'll take nchand a half from the shoulder or so...
Would be cool to see more vids about hand-made clothes and maybe bijouterie...
huge love to you!

Jennifer said...

Kandee...I love love love this! Being an 80's gal for real, this has always been my fave for t-shirts. My 18 yo daughter just got 2 new shirts this weekend (Ghostbusters and Goonies-both black) and cut them 80's style. We love your blog and You-tube vids so much! Keep up the Totally Awesome work!

Maggie said...

The most dramatic improvement you can make in your style is to,make sure everything fits. Most guys wear clothes that are too large. Make sure everything you wear is almost hugging the curves of your body
