Tutorial: T-shirt Refashion--New Neckline for T

 When I first experienced mail shopping years and years ago, my eyes were set on this white T.  It looked so cute on the catalog and would be a perfect fit for a petite gal like me.  But upon receiving the package, I was beyond words disappointed to find that this T was not even wearable with the crazy low neck line.
 Anyone in her right mind would have just thrown it in the donation bin.  But I have had a really hard time tossing it away.  Every time I looked at this T, I thought, perhaps I could fix this one day.  So, it stayed in my closet for years and years.  Until...
I was taking the bags of donated clothing to the curb to be collected the next morning, and I saw a brand new oversize white T-shirt that my son put in the bag.  Ah-ha!

A. Fold the strip over to wrap the raw edge of gathered line (as a bias tape) and baste.
B. Stitch in place.
C. Lay the finished piece on top of T to determine the placement for the new neckline.
D. Tug the piece inside the T and pin in place.  Sew along the original neck line seam to secure it.
Now I could finally put this T on!
