1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: T-shirt Alteration Help Greatly Appreciated - Neckline Too Big on: March 04, 2012 11:33:12 PM
@rookiecrafter. YOU ARE A GENIUS. I unpicked a small section of the shoulder seams and threaded a length of elastic through the back part of the neckband - stitching it down at both ends - and it worked brilliantly. The T-shirt no longer reveals my bra or my cleavage.

LOVE IT. THANK YOU.

@StitchWench. I waitress in a busy Italian restaurant so comfort is a priority; and with the humidity in Sydney lately I need to be as lightly dressed as possible. In winter, though, I will definitely do something like this. Thanks for your suggestions.

T-shirts ALWAYS do this to me (grumble grumble). I'm short but I have a bust so it's virtually impossible to buy something off the rack and have it fit perfectly.

I just got a new job (yay!) and I will be in need of some new tops to wear to work. I'm hoping that someone will be able to give me some alteration tips in this area.

Sorry for the awful picture but it's very overcast today.

Oh and it's a T-shirt style top with jersey material.

Thanks in advance.

It ended up on Miss Five's bed (after being banished to the linen closet for the last three months, I never wanted to see it again) and she loves it. Strangely enough I don't mind it so much either.

I second the colour combo! Looks great!

Thanks to everyone who posted lovely comments on my previous quilt which I had written off as a disaster. I had a smaller piece of patchwork from last year sitting in my stash which I ended up cutting up and re-piecing with sashing to make this eye-catching, fun play quilt which will now to go the triplets. Still a few places where there's a tiny bit of bunching, but nowhere near the train wreck of the last one.

I was so careful with the basting on this quilt! I taped the backing to the floor, I sprayed, I pinned, AND I hand-basted a big 'X' from corner to corner and then another big '+' in the middle of the quilt. It worked. Phew.

I love it and I'm very pleased to be able to gift something that I'm personally very proud of.

(Oh and he's giving me $100 for it so it's not entirely free!!)

I really set the bar way too high for myself this time. Also, I think I made the mistake of basting and quilting it while fresh out of the worst flu I've ever had.

Result = serious, serious puckering and diagonal shear. Sh^t.

Resisted the urge to collapse in a heap and wail, "I'VE RUINED IT!". Finished it off anyway, bound it, attached a label. It's for a friend who has a friend back home with new triplets. He's not picking it up until Friday so I'm tempted to try and whip something else up in the meantime and really make sure I baste this one properly. I don't know what went wrong - I always use a combination of spray adhesive and safety pins - but maybe because of the size of the patchwork pieces and the randomness of the design it just didn't have enough stability in the sandwich phase.

Anyway, C&C welcome on the rest of it while I work out what to do next. Smiley
