I am going a post for the PR Blog about interesting neckline treatments in knit tops.

If you've ever modified your TNT pattern's neckline to give a different look, let me know and I'd love to feature it on the blog.

An example is here:

Neckline Jalie 2794

and another one

contrasting binding!

It doesn't have to be this pattern. It can be any pattern you've used as a starting point for your creativity.

If you are rotating darts to the neckline, sew in beads and draw up the extra fabric between the beads. It's sort of like a pleat.

Sample

These were sewn in by hand and it takes a little bit of work to get them sewn in evenly (as you can tell).

Actual review.

I have seen all these in RTW, it's a matter of getting them to the machine before the style changes with seasons! Along with all the twisted flowers, zig-zagged ribbon, rolled tulle.

I wonder if they will be "Out" with fall fashions (to keep us buying.)
I noticed a lot of the plain slouchy loose necklines, often with batwing sleeves, coming out now and less of the Empire waists of the last couple years. Since cotton prices are soaring, maybe some of the embellishments will be cut, along with finishing hems on tops and sleeves, lasting quality, buttons.

Meanwhile, I have been re-purposing vintage laces, trims, etc. from estate and thrift sales. Just found a cute handmade crocheted doily with pink and yellow flowers and green leaves, which I plan to cut apart for the skirt of my GD's new dress.

Very cool! I remember doing something like that more out of necessity than style and loved the look!

Wow! Ok spill the beans Sherril! How did you do it. It's lovely and I want to CLONE that t-shirt. And why weren't you wearing it at the PR Weekend?

You know what? I think I am going to challenge myself to copy each and every look in this blog post.

Love the random flowers and the color!
Did the flower tute have a pattern, want to know
if the middles are just gathered or are those buttons?
