Cowl Neck Tee Refashion: a tutorial


Materials Needed:

Tee (Scoop neck worked well for me)

3/4 yd lightweight, flowy fabric
-- Doesn't have to be lace, just try to find a fabric that you think would drape well, nothing too stiff--

Found my scoop neck at Target for $8. It's the same tee I used in this tee refashion. 

If you haven't noticed, I'm a total Target junkie. Seriously, I'm there at least once a week. I may have a problem..


Measure the circumference of the collar of your tee.

Add 3 inches to that number. This will be the length of your rectangle
i.e. My collar measured 34" so the length of my rectangle is 37"

I went with a 26" width, Leaving me with one rectangle 26" by 37"

Fold rectangle in half (hot dog style) and sew down the long side of the rectangle.

I used a wide zig zag stitch. It seemed to do a better job at mending the lace together.

Turn your tube right side out and you'll have something like this:

Beginning at the back of the collar, pin your fabric around.

When you've come full circle, it will look something like this:

Insert one end into the other.

Fold in the edge and pin in place.

Sew down this line.

Again using a zig zag stitch begin at the back of the shirt and sew the fabric along the collar.

Be very aware of what layers of fabric you're sewing through. It's very easy to accidentally catch a section of fabric that you don't mean to.

Don't worry about making the stitch pretty. It won't show

Done! Looks a little funky like this but don't worry. Try it on and let the fabric drape naturally. 

Neat, huh? Kind of like a permanent infinity scarf.

I forsee making more of these lovelies come fall. Ugh I can't wait! Give me cardigans, flats, and a cool autumn breeze please. 

A Perfect little top for our sushi date night...

Have a lovely day (:
