The Best Look

So keep to the seam line and the shirt will be keep its structure once you have cut the back.
Turn your shirt over and on the back of the shirt, half way up the arm make a little cut with your scissors, as that is where you will want to end the shred to again make sure your shirt holds its structure. Then you will need to fold your shirt in half so that the sides are facing up and down. Make sure the side seams are perfectly lined up so cut get a nice even cut. Cut all the way along for a far as like depending on your preferences. Keep the strips about an inch apart, as an inch is about right in terms of visibility and durability. Continue all the way up the shirt until you reach the mark you made earlier. Remember to take your time and try to make your cuts as straight as possible for the best look.
