Print the front and back rib cage templates before trimming the first page on a solid line and matching to a dotted line on the second page. Then tape together.
Pinch the front of white T-shirt at the center of neck and pull forward, lining up the sleeve and side seams to create a fold down the center front of the shirt. Lay the T-shirt flat on a cutting mat with this fold to the right.
Spray repositionable adhesive on the back of the front rib cage template. Then place on the folded front side of the T-shirt, lining up the vertical line with the fold.
Cut horizontal rib lines with a small rotary cutter. Leaving the T-shirt flat, cut curved areas using the fabric scissors.
Repeat steps two and three to create ribs on the back of the T-shirt, using the back rib template and lining up the vertical line with the back fold.
Peel off templates. Unfold T-shirt and wear over a black shirt.
