No Turtles Allowed

I used to be a fan of turtlenecks, but in the past couple of years, I’ve decided they weren’t the most flattering look for me. I’ve turned to long-sleeved t-shirts to get me through the winter and serve as layering pieces for my wardrobe. Still, I had three really nice turtlenecks that I wasn’t willing to give up or throw away. Then I had a great idea. Why not have the neck removed and turn them into t-shirts? Hmmm. I took them to work today and asked our alterations lady if the turtleneck part could be removed and the edges turned under and stitched. She said as long as I didn’t want trim around the neck, that should work. She also suggested cutting about 1″ around the t-neck seam to allow a larger, more flattering neck. Voila! I now have two really nice new t-shirts! I’ll be taking the third one in on Thursday. I just love repurposing my wardrobe!
