How-To "Refashion" a Turtleneck- Guest Blogger, Sarah Cornett

I am so excited to spotlight a fellow blogger that I happened upon when browsing one day. She is super skillful with taking the mediocre to the extraordinary! Welcome Sarah, from Sarah's Never-Ending Projects! Take it away Sarah!

"Hi all! I'm Sarah from Sarah's Never-Ending Projects! The How-To Gal asked me if I would be willing to share a project with you today, and of course I was so excited for the opportunity! Today I'm going to share with you a refashioning tutorial. This project is very simple, and inexpensive (possibly even free, if you already have what's needed!)

You will need:
*Access to a sewing machine
*Thread, Pins, Etc.
*A turtleneck shirt
I found this shirt at Ross for 4 dollars. Ross is a great place to find inexpensive turtlenecks, but you can also use one that you already have, if you have one.

First of all, you'll need to remove the turtleneck off of the top. Cut as close to the neck seam as possible, without crossing the seam.

You should have 2 separate pieces by this point; a tube that used to be the turtleneck, and a crew neck top.

Next, cut the seam of the turtleneck completely off, and open up fabric of the turtleneck completely up. You should have a nice-sized block of fabric now to work with.

Now cut strips from the turtleneck fabric that are about 1 1/2 inches thick. You'll need about 3 of them.
Sew the strips together, so it makes one long strip.

Now you're going to pin them to the collar of the shirt, making sure that the center of the trim matches up with just below the very top of the neckline of the shirt. fold and pin in a pleated, over-under pattern, as shown below. You may have some extra, just snip it the rest off.

From here, it's simple, just sew a single line straight down the middle of the trim, and you're ready to go!"

Thank you so much for sharing, Sarah! Be sure to stop by her blog for other fun projects!
