Over 10 years ago, a girl friend of mine told me about how wonderful and great these were:That's right...I wear men's undershirts. I love them. I wear them for all kinds of things. Painting, working out, lounging around the house, etc. I usually wear a medium, but last year when I found out I was pregnant, I bought extra large (that fit up until that last month). Now, I have about 10 or so v-neck undershirts in my t-shirt pile. Well, with my most recent sewing hobby, I use them for something new. I use them to cut into scraps for practice.
Then, I saw this on Pleated Poppy:This girl put ruffles on her own t-shirt. Since a white t-shirt and blue jeans is my favorite thing to wear, I knew that I had to try this and add it to my collection of white tops. Enter: yet another use for favorite v-necks.
I took a v-neck shirt, cut it out to make a scoop neck, finished the edges, and followed the instructions from the Pleated Poppy. Here is my rough draft of this shirt:
I'm pretty in love with this. I'll be making more. (Side note & huge ego boost: when I was wearing this, I ran into one of my friends who did not believe that I made this myself. She asked me if I would make one for her too. I am only too happy to oblige.)
