I am not fond of the neckline on t-shirts. It feels too close to me. I am one who doesn't care to have fabric or even necklaces up close around my neck. So t-shirts make me feel uncomfortable. I decided to alter the neckline in an old t-shirt. I figured I didn't have anything to lose since I don't like to wear it the way it was made anyway.
First I cut the neck close to the stitching. Then I folded the fabric over and pinned it. Next I used a long straight stitch to hold it down. This is all that needs to be done and I did that on two t-shirts. This morning I decided to go one step further. I added lace. Again thinking no harm no foul. If I didn't like it I would only be out the lace since I didn't wear this t-shirt because of the neck. Soooo, I added lace. I used a three step zig zag and went slowly so the lace laid down just right. I paid attention to how far away the lace was from the edge as well.
This is how it turned out. I really like it.
