Gather your supplies.

To cut the neck of a shirt, you will need the following supplies:
-a sharp pair of scissors
-a shirt
-a ruler or a measuring tape

First, lay the shirt flat on a surface. Then, using the ruler or measuring tape, measure how much you want to cut off of the neck. Once you have an idea of how much you want to cut off, use the sharp scissors to cut along the neckline. Make sure to cut slowly and evenly. Finally, try on the shirt to make sure that the neckline is even and that you are happy with the results.

Cut a horizontal line across the neck of the shirt.

Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut a horizontal line across the neck of the shirt. The horizontal line should be about 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the edge of the shirt’s collar. Be sure to cut through both layers of fabric if you’re cutting a collared shirt. If you’re cutting a crew-neck shirt, only cut through one layer of fabric.

Cut two vertical lines from the horizontal line to the bottom of the shirt.

Start by cutting a horizontal line across the neck of the shirt, about an inch or two below the collar. Next, cut two vertical lines from the horizontal line to the bottom of the shirt. Make sure that these lines are evenly spaced and that they are both parallel to each other. Finally, cut along the horizontal line to separate the neckline of the shirt from the rest of the garment.

Try on the shirt to see if you need to make any adjustments.

If the shirt fits well in the body but is too big in the neck, you can easily adjust it. Simply cut off the excess fabric around the neckline to create a more fitted look. This is a quick and easy alteration that anyone can do at home with just a few tools.

You will need:
-A shirt that is too big in the neck
-Scissors
-A sewing machine (optional)
-Thread (optional)

Instructions:
1. Try on the shirt to see if you need to make any adjustments. If the shirt is too big in the neck, mark where you would like to cut it with a pen or chalk. Make sure to leave enough room so that the neckline is not too tight.
2. Cut off the excess fabric around the neckline, following your markings. 3. If you want, you can sew a seam around the new neckline to finish it off. This is not necessary, but it will help keep the fabric from fraying over time. 4. Try on the shirt again to make sure everything fits well. Make any final adjustments as needed
