Cut off the tag.
Cut a rectangle around the neckband and shoulders. I cut my rectangle 14″ x 14″ leaving the shoulder seams and neckband intact.
Cut the hem off of the bottom of the shirt.
On the back of the neckband, cut two small slits. Use a safety pin to thread the hem “string” through the slits and through the neckband.
Lay out the hem “strings” down to the bottom of the rectangle.
