Tag Archives: Shirt Refashion

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?
