What is a cutoff shirt?
Cutoff t-shirts are perfect for showing off your muscles at the gym or while exercising outside. They are also quite comfortable. Simple supplies are required: an old t-shirt that you wish to rip up, a pair of scissors, and something to indicate your cuts on the t-shirt (such as chalk or a pen).
Can you cut a shirt with regular scissors?
If you are unable to obtain fabric scissors, normal scissors can be used. Even if regular scissors will do the job, you’ll notice that your cuts are not as clean and lovely as they would be if you’d used fabric scissors instead. If you’re going to be performing a lot of these T-shirt conversions, it’s a good idea to invest in a good set of scissors.
