Merrick from Merrick’s Art shows how to enlarge the neck of an existing tee. She doesn’t restitch the entire neckband and uses the banding that’s already on the shirt, so her revamped neckline blends into the original design. Her tutorial also shows how to add a little extra width to the side seams. She’ll use the shirt as a bodice for a dress. Go to her blog for the how-to.
