Sweater – we used the BB West Sweater Grey Marle for $69.95

Highlighter/ marker

Ruler

A friend (to help with measuring)

STEP 1 – Measure

First, put on your sweater and get a friend to help you mark where you want the cut made. No one available? just use a mirror!

Mark the sweater with a small line. Take the sweater off and complete the line using the ruler as a guide!

TIP: always measure a little lower than you would normally cut it, just incase you make a mistake!

STEP 2 – Cut

Simply cut along the beautifully drawn line you jut made.

TIP: Your friend can help keep the fabric tight for an easier cut!

STEP 3 – Try it on

Try on the crop to see if it is short enough. As you can see in our pics, there is definitely room to go shorter!

STEP 4 – Fix
