Original shirt I had posted earlier about the CP Shades Yoko shirt and how the lovely manager at one of my favorite boutiques had cut off the bottom of hers to make it instantly more chic and wearable.
well I did to mine, and if my husband found out I cut off the bottom of a 187.00 dollar shirt he would - well, lets say, not understand. Here's what I did.
still in its original condition, I measured to desired length. In this case it was 4inches for the front and about 3.5in in the back.

I measured from the hem up at the side seam and cut.

Yep, I must be nuts but no turning back now. I cut across to the other side seam, making sure not to cut perfectly straight. I used a pin in the center to make sure I was still at 4in all the way but sort of made wavy cuts here and there.

I repeated this on the back but I made it about an inch and a half longer. This gave it more of a shirt tail hem look. I then put it into the washer inside out to make it frey and air dried it.

The final product
I love the way it turned out!FEW!!
It had too much volume on the bottom and this lightens it up so much.
