I bought this top a few years ago and have only worn it a handful of times. In fact, I did not even wear it last winter. When I rearranged my wardrobe recently I decided to make sure that every piece earned its place.
I put the top on briefly the other day and realised why I don’t choose to wear it. I do not like the feel of high, fitted necklines and this was simply not comfortable.
I had nothing to lose so I set about modifying the neckline. I cut just below the ribbed band. The pins mark the quarter points of the new neckline.
New ribbing pinned in place.
The finished article with a new, more comfortable neckline. It will look better once the seam is pressed. I am looking forward to getting plenty of wear out of the top in the coming months.
Approximately 15minutes of my time was all that was needed to turn this into a garment that I will be happy to wear.
