How To Make A Round Neck Into A V Neck- T-Shirt Alteration

I got a  t-shirt in New York in a child’s size because it was cheaper and fits fine apart from the neckline which is a bit tight and I would prefer it in a V-neck.  So I decided to re cut the neckline.  I could have created a new collar from spare jersey but I decided to use the original collar.  So here’s what to do:

  • Unpick the neckline at the front
  • Cut the neckline into a V shape (don’t cut the collar)
  • Stretch the collar as much as possible
  • Reattached the collar to the new neckline

As you can see the result isn’t as smooth as the original collar because the jersey is being stretched but I quite like that.
