So I had this t-shirt, and it's one of those tops that you keep end up wearing but you're never entirely happy with it.
1. Nice length and fit
1. All-over blue isn't really my thing
2. The collar was too tight
I was thinking about what to do with it, and suddenly realised that I could just replace the collar and line the edges of the sleeve with the same material. I did see a tutorial for the collar-replacement, but I couldn't find it again when I looked... so ty to whoever directed me all that time ago n__n;
I haven't got any before pictures, but here are the after pictures...
I first took the original collar off. I then replaced it with a strip of black fabric from an old strappy top and sewed it into a collar. With the sleeves, I was feeling a bit lazy so I left the original hem and sewed the edging over it. I was lucky enough to find some thread that was the same colour as my shirt so any mistakes with the stitching are hard to see. There is one bit on the back of the collar where it bunched slightly, annoyingly I didn't realise until after but I'm okay with it as a whole
Plus, it's one of the first times I've had an idea and it's worked out! The best part about this project was that I didn't have to do any fiddling hemming.
