Change the neck by adding a facing and embroidery.
I used Dime’s – “Simple to Chic T-shirt Remakes” (style Zoe). Here are the steps I did.
#1 Embroidered on a plain contrasting fabric so it would stand out.
#2 Used the stitched outline of the embroidery (outside edge) to know where to turn the edge under (pressed).
#3 Applied the facing RIGHT side against the WRONG side of center front blouse neckline.
#4 Stitched on the location for the front slit (embroidery line is stitched in with embroidery). Pressed.
#5 Turned facing to the front. Pressed.
#6 Stitched the edge of the facing to the blouse front.
#7 Finished the neck with a 1 1/2″ wide bias strip and turned front edge down.
#8 Made a cord thread on the serger by stitching out a 3 thread rolled hem on air and with a needle pulled serged cord through the neck point and tied beads at the bottom.
I will do this again and take pictures as I go next time.
