In the recesses of my closet sits a collection of t-shirts, each loaded with sentimental value or personal meaning. Among them, concert memorabilia, travel memorabilia and visually striking graphic tees stand out, their allure muted only by ill-fitting crewnecks. Take, for example, a souvenir Disney Animal Kingdom shirt, beloved for its vibrant hue and captivating design, but perpetually sidelined due to its uncomfortably tight neckline – a stark contrast to my preference for the casual elegance of collars in V.

But fear not, because there is a simple solution to this dilemma. This week, I'm sharing the transformation process by which any crew neck t-shirt can be easily converted into a v-neck t-shirt. Join me on this creative journey as I bring my once garment back to life neglected. Soon, this t-shirt will proudly take its place in my regular wardrobe rotation, a testament to the power of sewing and remodeling.

From round neck to V-neck

1

Try on the shirt and mark where you want the V to touch your chest.

2

Cut the existing neckband just below the seam.

3

Fold the T-shirt in half with the shoulder seams aligned. Mark a cut line from the shoulder seams to the mark you made in the previous step. Cut the slanted neckline at the front.

4

Measure the new neckline. Mine is now 24 inches.

5

To create the new neckline, first calculate 85% of the new neckline measurement. Create a new neckline by cutting a 2-inch piece of knitted jersey by this new neckline measurement. My new lanyard measures 2 inches by 20.4 inches. I just rounded to 20.5. You stretch it slightly as you sew it.

6

Pin the neckband to your neckline, right sides together, and sew the rest of the neckband with an overlocker or zigzag stitch like I did.
