There must be ways of doing this!

I'm taking a regular round neck t-shirt, and cutting out the neck, I'm left with the edge from the pinking shears. OK ... now I'm folding back, turning inside out and using bias iron-on tape to hold in place. I'm then sewing buttons along the neckline outside, then using liquid thread to glue another smaller button on top of that one.

What's happening is when I put it on, the 3 middle buttons in front, are drooping downward, seems top-heavy, but even when I removed the smaller button on top of larger button, they still droop. :-(

Problem may be that I sewed the buttons to come half-way up over the neckline (fabric), I probably should have sewed them down further, right?

Is there anything to do now, or do I have to remove the buttons and sew them down further?

Thanks for your help! It's cute anyway ... when I fix this, it'll be a really neat T. I'm gonna do this with all my round neck T's, cause I hate round necks, but they're always on sale, so I stock up.

ALSO: wanted to ask, what would I use/buy to place around outside of neckline to cover up the ragged edge when I cut it out?  Is there curved rick-rack, or something that's especially for that?

Looking forward to your suggestions!
Dee
