another turtleneck

What perfect timing..I made my turtleneck shirt then found this blog...Its all about tranforming clothes you already have into something you will love! Check out all the great links...Now, on with my turtleneck..


I always forget to take a before picture! this was another turtleneck that i bought for $2.99. I took this picture after i cut off the neck and sleeves (obviously) then I remembered to take a picture.
so then  you will see below are the sleeves...

 
I turned them inside out and cut off the seam of the arms.

Then I cut 2 strips at 1.5 width and started to gather it.
Then I strategically place it on the collar of the shirt..oh yeah, I cut it into a v-neck.
And here we are. After I sewed on the ruffles I cut 2 strips 3 inches wide right in the middle then you just tie it into a bow!

Pretty cute don't you think? I actually really love it! Not too bad for $2.99 and it only took about 45 mins to make.
Thanks for looking!
I'm participating in these linky parties:

  6. Delila, this is adorable. I've had several turtlenecks, that I just gave away, I hate them, besides how practical they are when it's really cold, but otherwise, ewwww. I can hardly believe this used to be one.

    I'd love if you linked this up. Stop by anytime to say hello!!!

    Hugs,

  11. Fabulous, Delilah, can't wait to make this one! I have a couple of cheap thrifted turtlenecks that need revamping. So cosy and practical for winter, and so darned ugly!
