I recently modded a t-shirt that I bought while on vacation in Thailand (pictured below). From boring to v-neckline = goodness.

My girlfriend, Sarah wanted a similar treatment to one of her tees after seeing mine.

Mark your desired neckline with tailors chalk. Double check to make sure everything's ok then get cutting!

What you should have is a new neckline minus the ribbing. The rib is what keeps the neckline together and prevents the shirt from slipping off your shoulders. To correct that, just use bias tape.

Start from the centre front then make your way around, pinning as you go. Keep it as straight as possible to prevent any gathering. When you reach the centre front again leave just enough so that it overlaps where you started pinning. Cut it at an angle so that it is in line with the centre front.

When all is said and done, you'll end up with your new neckline! Try experimenting with different lines. You`ll be fine as long as you have bias tape to hold it all together.
