If you are like me, your sweatshirt collection is growing every year. However, it often becomes difficult to find a particular sweatshirt when it comes to wearing it. After years of collecting these hooded garments, I decided to look for some creative ways to make them unique, modish, but still comfortable at the same time. Here is a list of the top 8 unique DIY sweatshirt cutting ideas I found, and all you will ever need is a sweatshirt and a pair of scissors!
Sweatshirt bottom cutting
This is a popular Diy cutting technique a lot of people love to try regardless of age. You can try out cutting the sweatshirt from its bottom in a semicircle, but it does not have to look even all the time. With a great taste in fashion, you can try an uneven bottom cut to make it look more stylish. Make sure to try out both even and uneven cuts at the bottom and choose what best fits your figure!
Cold shoulder cutting
The cold shoulder cut is the style of loose t-shirts, draping tops, off-the-shoulder dresses, and other loose-fitting garments that expose this part of the arm. The cold shoulder cut has grown in popularity over the last few seasons as streetwear and evening fashion. This is not surprising given its flirtatious feel and ease of wearability. Here we’re looking at The traditional ‘off the shoulder’ style that has been around for centuries. This cut exposes most of the upper arm, enabling it to be quickly seen when just a slither of skin is exposed lower down the arm.
Styling an oversized sweatshirt
Oversize sweaters are all the rage during fall and winter, but simply tossing them on with a pair of jeans leaves you looking bulky and frumpy. Follow this simple guide to learn how to style an oversized sweater for a fashionable and flattering look, no matter what your figure is like!
Cropped sweatshirts have been a massive trend for a while and can be seen on many celebrities. Everyone from Miranda Kerr to Khloe Kardashian has been spotted sporting the look! This trend is perfect for spring/summer because you can wear it with some shorts or jeans. Cropped sweatshirts are also great because they’re not too warm or too light, which makes them ideal for wearing when working out. When styling this, you can wear a mild-colored garment beneath the cut sweatshirt, and it will be another addition to your wardrobe! So let’s get started on how to make a cropped sweatshirt!
No-sew choker top
Are you worried about not having a matching choker? This might be one of the best choices to go with! Here what you are getting is simply a top with a choker neckline!

Now, direct the cutting towards a deep end, in a circular fashion, and make sure to cut all the way to the other shoulder’s neckline. You are done! In this cutting, you can decide how deep the cutting should go.
Sleeveless garments are classy yet feel homely! Same as its name suggests, sleeveless cropping helps you transform the sweatshirt into a sleeveless top. To make sure that the cut edges are neat and precise, clear off all the uneven spots! You can even combine this cutting type with bottom cropping so that it feels ultra-comfy and cozy!

You are the owner of your own fashion, so don’t forget that you can control the lengths of the slits. The longer the slits, the higher the elegance!
