Material You Need:-

(ii) Now, cut both the sleeves and the neckline to give it a perfect tank look and lastly trim the entire hem of the shirt from the bottom.

(iii) Measure across and decide how wide you want your fringe. I personally believe, ¼ inch wide is perfect. Keep in mind that every measurement of fringe needs to be equal.

(iv) Cut the strips carefully right up to the line you drew and tug each strand down to get a natural look.

(v) Now coming to the knotting part, you need to be patient in doing this because it will take a little time. To get that neat knot, take two adjacent strands together and loop it carefully. For a better understanding, see the picture below:
