By The Neck – Help Wanted


I have been doing a little purging lately and while I was going through my closet I noticed my Betty Boop shirt that I hadn’t worn in forever. The only real reason I have not worn it is because the arms of the shirt were made for a stick figure. I love this shirt and decided to try to refashion it, but after cutting off the sleeves I realized I didn’t have a plan.


I have no idea what I want to do with the neckline. I certainly don’t want to leave it as it is, but I don’t want something that will take away from Betty. I pined a few necklines on Pinterest, but I cannot make a decision. Below are just a few of my favorites.

Jumping in without a paddle is unlike me who is prone to over think everything! So now I need some help from y’all!

Any favorite necklines, pinned here or from another source? Any advice on altering necklines on a cotton shirt? Any things to avoid or past mishaps you would like to share? Anyone else loving the sneak peak of my curtains that will be featured in a post in the near future?

  1. Your shirt is so cute! I am the last person on earth to give fashion advice to. Trust me, I wear Costco and Target every day. 🙂 I think a bigger round neck would be cute, but I’m sure there are a billion other ways that would be even more fab. Good luck!

  2. o1-i love that you’re posing just like betty is.
    o2- i second the bigger rounded neckline.
    o3-that last dress neckline, with the buttoned flaps? LOVE.
    o4-but probably not for a t-shirt, ya know?
    o5-ooohhh…pretty curtains. can’t wait to see more.

    • Thank you! I didn’t even think about the pose I just handed the camera to my boyfriend and got ‘er done.

      I have to use the button flaps on something. They are just to sweet!

      I am so happy with the curtains, even if they are a pain in the @$$ to make. Thank goodness my mom helped me out!
