Living in a hot climate, I love wearing light weight shirts and blouses, but I hate the collars on them. They always need to be ironed for one, and they can look and feel sloppy too.
I came up with this idea of cutting the collar off, which makes it look like a Mandarin style collar. It works great and looks great! My shirts feel lighter and cooler too!
It's so simple and quick, and requires no sewing. You can do this in minutes!
Some of these shirts have long shirt tales. I like to cut them off and hem at top of hip level and wear them not tucked in. They look great with a pair of Capri's and it makes a cool comfortable summer outfit.
I've also done collars on my long sleeved shirts too.
