(Tutorial pics at: http://www.sisteroo.com/2011/09/shrink-sew.html)

This shirt was originally a little baggy and too restrictive with the collar. I didn't love it, I didn't hate it, but I wanted to experiment with collar removal so here we go.

1) Cut off the collar in the front and back.

2) Fold under fabric and sew a hem along your collar.

3) I decided to try the elastic again (red dress step five) and made an elastic ruffled collar for the shirt. I only had enough fabric from the original collar for a ruffle in the front (as the elastic bunches). I made the elastic pieces, made sure the hems were nice and sewed it on!

4) I took in the shirt slightly (as explained in step 4 of red dress) to give it more shape.

Finis!

wow I can't believe the difference between the two shirts! The ruffled collar looks so much better than the old one.
