Trim of your choice (lace, ribbon, etc.)
Step 1: Mark the parts of the shirt you would like to cut off or modify, for example, making the collar wider, shortening the sleeves or the hem.
Step 2: Cut on marks.
Step 3: Stay stitch around the collar and armhole and any other parts of the shirt you have cut off.
Step 4: Pin trim to collar, then stitch around.
Step 5: If you have left over fabric, try adding a pocket to your shirt. You can even use contrast fabric.
